Historic Districts Council’s 19th Annual Preservation Conference: Preservation Now!

Pre-Conference Panel Discussions:

Wednesday, February 20th 6:00p.m. – 8:00p.m.

The merge between technology and preservation has changed how we are able to interpret the past.  This is not only true of the built environment that surrounds us, but of our social and cultural history as well.  Technology has made it possible for us to understand what the political, social and cultural environment surrounding the neighborhoods we walk through every day was once like.

Join the Historic Districts Council for the 19th Annual Preservation Conference: Preservation Now! Pre-Conference Panel Discussions. Our first panel will address the topic of “Preservation and Technology” along with the emergence of current trends, issues and markets within the field.
