Join us for informal conversations about historic preservation throughout the United States and right here in Troy. Monthly topics and short readings will form the basis for our discussions as we look at larger preservation issues and see how they apply in real-life situations.
Preservation Conversations will be led by Jen Peters, Executive Director of the Troy Historic Village. Jen has an MS in Historic Preservation with a concentration in Museums from Eastern Michigan University. Her BA is in Anthropology and Art History and she has a background in Archaeology and Cultural Resource Management. She loves to travel, and historic buildings and museums are always at the top of her must-see list!
