Michigan Historic Preservation Network invites you to attend a 2-day workshop on the historic preservation of homes and small commercial buildings.
“Most owners of older and historic homes and small commercial buildings want to maintain and preserve their properties’ historic character, but often don’t know how. Additionally, these same owners want to boost their energy conservation and need to understand lead-based paint hazards. If you are such an owner, come and meet with preservation professionals who will discuss these challenges and offer information and demonstrations to help you on your way. This primer to historic preservation will give you the basics and a framework from which to begin your projects that will result in a well maintained building that showcases its historic character.”
