Focusing on Preserving N.H.’s Historic Sites, Buildings and Landscapes

March 12th, 2008 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-In conjunction with Plymouth State University’s launching the new Historic Preservation Certificate program, the N.H. Preservation Alliance’s conference, ‘Preserving Community Character,’ will be held April 11-12 at Heritage Commons on the campus of PSU. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen will provide the opening remarks at the event.

“Historic preservation in New Hampshire is of critical importance,” Steen said. “Our successors will thank us for the good work being done in New Hampshire’s communities.”

The event will focus on community engagement and preservation planning. Participants will hear from experts, learning through case studies, join interactive discussions, and share ideas in small groups and tour local historic preservation projects. New Hampshire Preservation Alliance Executive Director Jennifer Goodman says there is a growing interest in historic preservation and this conference hopes to capitalize on that.

“The conference offers an important opportunity to provide information, inspiration and networking opportunities to preservation advocates across the state,” Goodman said.

Details about the conference and registration forms will be posted on the Alliance Web site, www.nhpreservation.org

Stacey Yap, PSU Historic Preservation Certificate Coordinator, believes the conference will be a valuable opportunity to welcome new participants into the field.

“This exciting field is growing, and we are proud to help foster the exchange of ideas and demonstrate the importance of protecting our historic landscape and buildings,” said Yap. “PSU is honored to be hosting this conference. Our partnership with the N.H. Preservation Alliance is a valued relationship.”

For the first time, Plymouth State University’s College of Graduate Studies is offering a four-course graduate certificate in Historic Preservation. The certificate can be pursued alone or as part of the Master of Education in Heritage Studies program.

The conference entry fee for members of the N.H. Preservation Alliance is $35 for one day, $60 for two days. Entry fees for the general public are $80 for both days.
