Learn ‘Preservation 101’ on Feb. 17

The Troutdale Historical Society will hold a “Preservation 101” presentation at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at the Barn Museum, 732 E. Historic Columbia Highway, Troutdale.

The program, led by Brendon Spence-Hartle, will highlight the role of historic preservation in sustainability, from the economic development created by rehabilitating buildings to the environmental stewardship that comes with conserving existing materials.

The presentation will inform participants of the criteria for listing a property in the National Register of Historic Places, while highlighting the regulations and standards that pertain to historic properties.

The program is intended to empower residents to think creatively about how to preserve historic places in the 21st century, from finding funding to finding new uses for seemingly obsolete buildings.

The program is free to the public, with light refreshments served. In case of bad winter weather, the program will be rescheduled.
