Note: Tom Mayes' popular Why Do Old Places Matter series will be released in as a bookWhy Old Places Matter on September 1, 2018. Pre-order the book today.Old places matter for many reasons to many people. So this Preservation Month we asked you to submit a 30-second video that told us why old places matter to you. The videos we received ranged from the importance of place as a whole – such as this video from the Montgomery County Historic Preservation Office—or the importance of one specific place in a community – such as this video from a community working to save Flick Ranch in Reno. Each entry reflected the passion and love we feel for protecting historic places and the reasons why they are so important. Now it’s time to announce the winners. Drumroll please…
And the winner is…EVERYONE! We couldn’t decide which video we liked best, and so we’ve decided to find a way to feature all of the videos this fall at PastForward in Washington, D.C. Haven’t watched the videos yet? Take a look below. For additional material on Why Do Old Places Matter? go here.
