Michigan Historic Preservation Network invites you to attend a 2-day workshop on the historic preservation of homes and small commercial buildings.

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.”
