TrustLive: Resaving Saved Places 

Held in partnership with Colorado Preservation Inc at their Saving Places Conference. First aired at the Saving Places Conference February in Denver, the discussion is now available on YouTube.


TrustLive: Resaving Saved Places
Is a place ever truly saved? Fifty years after the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act and decades since we secured the future of places like Larimar Square in Colorado and the Ashley River Road near Charleston, we find ourselves revisiting familiar places confronting new threats. Resaving Saved Places will feature a keynote by Danielle Del Sol, the new executive director of the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans. New Orleans, like Larimar Square and the Ashley River Road, exemplify some of our best and most forward-looking techniques for preserving heritage. And yet, each in its own way, now faces threats almost unimaginable to its early champions. Danielle will be joined by Anne Nelson, associate general counsel at the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Annie Levinsky, executive director for Historic Denver, for a facilitated conversation moderated by Susan West Montgomery, vice president for Preservation Resources at the National Trust. The panel will discuss present-day threats and potential solutions in a dynamic, live-streamed plenary session.
