National Alliance of Preservation Commissions Annual Conference

Virtual

Hosted by National Alliance of Preservation Commissions

Cost: $100

The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions has made the difficult decision to cancel FORUM 2020: Preservation Coast to Coast as an in-person conference that was set to be held July 22 to 26 in Tacoma, Washington. NAPC intends to provide online training and education through an interactive platform that will draw upon many of the sessions and speakers we were planning for FORUM in Tacoma. We will also be highlighting the City of Tacoma through interactive virtual tours and experiences. We are grateful for the support of our local, state and national partners as we shift gears to enhancing our current content to an educational and exciting online experience.

The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society invites you to the unveiling of our facial reconstruction project. The guests of honor at this event have been dead for 200 years. For the first time, see forensic facial reconstructions of two enslaved African Americans from Catoctin Furnace. The unveiling will take place at 6:30 and will include a short presentation about the 200-year-old mystery brought to life. The evening will include plentiful hors d’oeuvres, wine/beer bar, and music. The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society is a 501©3 nonprofit. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the completion of the Museum of the Ironworker so we can bring these individuals home.

9:00am — 5:30PM.

Old Line State Summit: Approaches to Preserving Difficult/Authentic History Along the Underground Railroad

Virtual

Hosted by Preservation Maryland

Given the illegal nature of its operations, sites of the Underground Railroad across the United State were often hidden and secret. That necessity now presents a challenge to preservationists dedicated to identifying, preserving, and interpreting these important histories where they happened. Speakers for this session include Dr. Kate Clifford Larson, author and historian, and Heather Ersts, Outreach & Partnership Coordinator for the Maryland Department of Tourism Development.
