From Daunting to Moving the Needle: Preservation & Restoration Reveals What’s Next? (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: From Daunting to Moving the Needle: Preservation & Restoration Reveals What’s Next?
Abstract: Presentation Type: Panel – Skills Building (60 minutes w/ PPT: 40 min panel and 20 min Q&A) Title: From Daunting to Moving the Needle: Preservation & Restoration Reveals What’s Next? Session Description: In partnership with the City of Dubuque, The Dubuque County Historical Society engaged in a 4-year, ~$1.5 million dollar preservation and restoration project of the National Register of Historic Places’ Mathias Ham House and Historic Site in Dubuque, IA. The Ham House is run as a museum along with an interpretive site which is comprised of several historic structures including the National Register of Historic Places’ Mathias Ham House, Iowa’s Oldest Log Cabin, and the Humke One-room Schoolhouse—one of Iowa’s few country school houses still standing. This skills building panel presentation will explore the various moving parts of a preservation initiative of great magnitude— one that will provide an overarching lens that allows for organizations of varying sizes to scale to need. The varied expertise of each panelist intersects to inform on funding, compliance and regulation of historic properties (SHPO is your friend!), juggling contractors, timelines, site surveys, and the envisioning process for the future of a historic property. The panel will inform on processes as they reveal the silver lining of a completed project— uncovering vast potential for What’s Next? in programmatic, interpretive, learning experiences, and the future of your historic structure and the vision for your organization. A must for stewards of National Register of Historic Places and Landmark properties, the panel will discuss National Historic Preservation Act’s Section 106 process; the role of the State Historical Preservation Officer (SHPO); cultural resource & site survey work; private public partnerships and; local government, state, and federal funding— all as they intersect with historic preservation.
