A Note from Our Friends at the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance:
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance will host our biennial Preservation Conference and Awards Celebration on May 19th at the Claremont Opera House in downtown Claremont, NH!
After a pandemic kept us apart, we are excited to return to an in-person gathering to celebrate creative and impressive projects from around the state; meet with colleagues and new friends to discuss issues related to downtown/village vibrancy, organizational strength and capacity; and working with (and finding) the right contractor and architect, among many other topics.
Claremont will serve as the perfect laboratory for this conference. The city of 13,000 has worked tirelessly to redevelop its mill yard and enliven its architecturally significant downtown core using tools like its locally designated historic district, downtown revitalization tax incentives, federal historic tax credits, and strategic city investments.
The day’s events will highlight the city’s restored Opera House, newly repurposed mills, the Claremont Maker Space, and past award-winning preservation projects through tours and sessions.
Our conference attracts preservation advocates, practitioners and investors, as well as community leaders, planners, architects and design and construction professionals. Additionally, members of historic district commissions, heritage commissions and historical societies have found the conference helpful and instructive.
Please join us!
