About Preservation Walks & Talks

Led by HSF Executive Director Frank Strassler and a host of knowledgeable guest speakers, these informative discussions feature topics that relate to preserving the community, planning, identifying historic architecture, celebrating property rehabilitation, and experiencing neighborhood revitalization. Preservation Walks are held during the warmer months of the year and will meet at various times and locations. Preservation Talks are generally held on the first Friday of each month at noon in the R.R. Smith Center for History and Art 2nd floor lecture hall. Preservation Walks & Talks are casual, free, and open to the public.
