Preserving Historic Road conference showcases Mead & Hunt work
Posted in: Cultural Resources
I’ve got great news! I’m presenting at the 20th Anniversary Preserving the Historic Road Conference along with my coworker, a talented historic preservationist, Tim Smith. It is an honor, and exciting, to stand before my peers to share a few of our recent cultural resource projects and experiences.
This year the conference will be held in Fort Collins, Colorado, on September 13-16. Preserving the Historic Road is an international conference with attendees from more than 30 states, Asia, Australia and Europe. Attendees are dedicated to the identification, preservation and management of historic roads.
The 2018 conference will include robust discussions and debates on the future of historic roads in the United States and around the globe. The educational sessions – like mine and Tim’s – will showcase how the preservation of historic roads can contribute to the economic, transportation, recreational and cultural needs of our communities.
Where to find Mead & Hunt
Both Tim and I will be participating in discussions, networking and programs. We hope you’ll join us for lunch and attend the programs we are presenting.
