Preservation NC 2024 Annual Conference

Preservation NC’s 2024 Annual Conference

Rocky Mount & Tarboro | October 16-18

Join us this October in Rocky Mount and Tarboro! Rocky Mount is a mid-sized city centrally located on the fall line that separates the lower coastal plain from the hilly Piedmont. This railroad town and former tobacco hub is divided between Nash and Edgecombe counties and is home to several inspiring rehabilitation projects including Rocky Mount Mills, the Imperial Centre, the Booker T. Theater, and the city’s Romanesque-style 1903 passenger train station.

Tarboro is an older river town and the county seat of Edgecombe County with a colonial Town Common. Considered one of the most architecturally distinguished small towns in the eastern part of our state, highlights there include Calvary Episcopal Church and Churchyard, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, the Matthewson House, Coolmore, and the Barracks.

Save the date on your calendar and join us! More details coming soon…

Call for Conference Session Proposals!

Do you have an idea for a session you want to present to a statewide audience? Preservation North Carolina is accepting session proposals until the end of April for the 2024 Annual Conference. Session speakers receive free registration to conference educational sessions.

Proposed sessions should appeal to a broad audience of historic preservation enthusiasts and generalists. Have you been involved in a local project or initiative others could benefit from? Do you want to organize a panel to lead a collaborative conversation on an issue? Have you finished a research project with a discovery you want to share? All ideas are welcome! From entry level to expert, we want to hear from you.

If you’re unsure about your proposed session, don’t worry, fill out the proposal as best you can and we’ll follow up to work out the details of your idea to see if it’s a good fit. Submissions due by April 30.
