Hosted by National Alliance of Preservation Commissions
The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions has made the difficult decision to cancel FORUM 2020. 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.
Just because a house isn’t a famous landmark, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a rich history. Researching the history of a house can be as time consuming as genealogy, but can be equally rewarding. Learn how to use resources such as city directories, newspapers, maps, land records, historical registers, and architectural surveys to research the history of a house, even if it no longer exists. Many of these resources can be searched online. Presented by Julie Saylor, Maryland Department Librarian.

When we think of classical architecture, we usually think of ancient temples or the cathedrals and palaces that Renaissance architects built in imitation of classical antiquity. We don’t usually think of row houses. We should. In the years between 1600 and about 1850, the years when the people of the North Atlantic world wanted classical architecture, they invented the row house and built the first row house cities.

The Shelter Series is Preservation NC’s Virtual Programming Series about Places That Matter. Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder, Alicia Garza described the underlying motivations for the BLM movement as fighting “to be seen, to live with dignity, and to be connected.” Building on this quote, Professor Kofi Boone uses these three themes as lenses to examine landscapes in North Carolina, and to show how Black Landscapes (could) Matter. Presented by Kofi Boone, ASLA – Professor of Landscape Architecture at NC State University.
