Homeowner Workshops

In order to meet the need for information about the care and maintenance of historic properties, the Preservation Alliance offers an ongoing series of Homeowner Workshops in the spring and fall targeted to the owners, and aspiring owners, of older and historic homes.

A key educational and outreach component of the Preservation Alliance’s Neighborhood Preservation Programs, the Homeowner Workshops have been very well received, with over 2,400 people having taken advantage of the free programs since they were introduced in the Fall of 2006. Workshop attendees have the opportunity to learn from a broad variety of preservation professionals on a range of topics including: working with architects and contractors; roofing on historic buildings; historic windows; and masonry and pointing. The workshops include either visual presentations or hands-on demonstrations followed by a question-and-answer time.

The Preservation Alliance, in collaboration with the Fairmount Park Historic Preservation Trust, People’s Emergency Center Community Development Corporation, and the Powelton Village Civic Association is pleased to present these workshops for the owners and aspiring owners of historic homes. Attendees will learn about the best practices for the restoration and maintenance of older and historic homes.

Free to Preservation Alliance Members.

$10 Per Workshop for the General Public. May be purchased on line or payable by credit, cash or check at the door.
