The Washington County Historical Society invites you to a three-part workshop about repairing historic wood windows taught by David Gibney and Paul Wade at the historic Saylor House on July 11, July 18, and July 25, 2020, 9AM-2PM, $150 per student.
The core of Section 106 seeks to provide the preservation of historic data for public benefit through mitigation. Common mitigation measures include “well-established, standard approaches such as archaeological data recovery (excavation) for a site or documenting a historic building that will be removed as a result of a project [and] photographic documentation may be appropriate for preserving at least some of that information.”
Telling the full story of our history is vital. Join Audrey Davis, director of the Alexandria Black History Museum, and representatives of some of this year’s listing on Virginia’s Most Endangered Historic Places, as they share their perspectives and how their work is expanding the narrative that has often been suppressed, excluded and misrepresented in the mainstream telling of history. Panel representatives include the Pine Grove School Community, Rassawek, the Alexandria Elks Lodge and the James Street Church.
