The Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference was held in Plymouth, MA, on September 20th. This one-day conference was one I really would have liked to be able to attend but I just wasn’t able to work it into my schedule. Part of the attraction was the location itself plus the work underway to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Pilgrims.
“This year’s theme, ‘Untold Stories in Preservation’ serves as a springboard for discussion, case studies and model preservation projects that reflect on and engage people in histories that have not been as widely acknowledged as others,” the welcome letter said. “Plymouth will be a touchstone for how different stories and legacies are represented and how historic preservation can play a role in presenting them.”
