Community Invited to Learn about Historic Preservation in Kalamazoo at May 8 Presentation

 

The Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Commission (KHPC) will be showcasing the history of historic preservation in Kalamazoo at a free presentation on Wednesday, May 8th in the Van Deusen Room of the Kalamazoo Public Library starting at 7pm.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about historic preservation work in Kalamazoo and the processes and organizations that perform this work. Presentation topics will also include how the preservation movement started, how historic preservation has impacted Kalamazoo, and upcoming projects such as the Hidden Kalamazoo book, the Grave Issues Squad gravestone inventory at Mountain Home Cemetery, and Old House Owners Workshops scheduled for this summer.

Kalamazoo was among the first communities to identify historic preservation as a tool in planning by appointing its first Commission for Historic Preservation in June 1965.
