Delaware & Lehigh - Nov. 18: Historic Preservation Roundtable to be Held

Written By Silas Chamberlin

On November 18 from 7-9 pm, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, Preservation Pennsylvania, and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor will host a region-wide historic preservation roundtable discussion in Room 200 of Lehigh University’s historic Linderman Library. Representatives from these organizations will be joined by local government officials, historic and cultural organizations, and the public to discuss a wide range of issues and concerns.  If you live in lower Carbon, Lehigh, Northampton, or upper Bucks counties and have an interest in historic preservation, this event is for you!

  • What are today’s most pressing historic preservation concerns?  What can we do about them?
  • What funding, grants, and tax incentives are available for historic preservation projects?
  • Who do I call when a historic building is threatened?
  • How can local governments prevent the demolition of historic buildings?
  • How can my community develop heritage tourism to create jobs and improve the local economy?

Bring your own questions and concerns!

The event is free, but registration is requested. To register or for more information, please contact Silas Chamberlin at 610-923-3548 (x222) or [email protected].
