Save the Date! Preservation NC 2018 Annual Conference
Preservation + Innovation
New Ideas Must Use Old Buildings—Jane Jacobs
Jane Jacobs famously said– “Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.” She was right– Innovation and Preservation go hand in hand. This year we’ll explore the ways entrepreneurs, architects, builders, chefs, restaurateurs, brewers, and preservationists are establishing their new ideas in old buildings. From Kinston to Greensboro, small towns and not-so-small town alike, folks are putting innovation to work and bringing new life to historic buildings and spaces.
Come network, learn, and be inspired by the creative ways innovation is shaping North Carolina’s historic landscape.
And it won’t be hard with the beach as a backdrop! That’s right, you’ll also enjoy some R & R (rescues and restoration) at the beautiful mid-century boutique hotel – the Blockade Runner Beach Resort – our conference host. You can book your room right now and take advantage of our great conference rates. And we couldn’t be at the beach without visiting the historic treasures in nearby Wilmington (including our own Bellamy Mansion)!
More conference details to follow, but you can book your rooms at the Blockade Runner right now to take advantage of the great conference hotel rates.
