We have a great storyline spanning 300 years of history here in our corner of the world. Why not learn more about it?

Do you get muddled by terminology of preservationists? Can you tell the difference between remodeling, restoration, reconstruction, and preservation? Do you know the difference between local designation and National Register status? Preservation Greensboro’s Executive Director will present an introduction to the terminology and concepts associated with historic preservation, including types of designations, using examples from around the world. This presentation is fun for both the seasoned professional as well as those new to the preservation movement. Benjamin has contributed to O.Henry Magazine and The High Point Enterprise,WFDD and WUNC radio, WGHP Fox8 and WFMY News 2, and wrote a book on the Architecture of High Point in 2008. 1.5 hours
