Architectural Preservation the Topic at Dorset Historical Society
The Dorset Historical Society’s Third-Thursday Lunch/Lecture at 12 noon on May 16 will feature Judy Hayward, executive director of the Preservation Education Institute/Historic Windsor, and a past president of the Preservation Trust of Vermont. Haywood will discuss architectural features commonly found in Vermont as well as the milestones in the evolution of the preservation movement in both our nation and our state. She will explain the differences between national, state and local designations of historic districts plus individual listings of places of historic importance. Also to be discussed: financial incentives for historic preservation projects. Most of all, her presentation will help attendees have more fun as they explore historic districts and buildings. These monthly talks are held at DHS’s Bley House Museum on Route 30 at Kent Hill Road in Dorset Village. Bring a bag lunch if you wish; beverages and desserts are provided.
