Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission

Announcing the Charlotte Museum of History’s New Preservation Seminar Series


The Charlotte Museum of History is excited to announce that registration for the new virtual Preservation Seminar Series is live! Presented in partnership with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission, the seminars will teach attendees about practical tools to preserve our region’s historic built environment. Topics covered over the three days will include local historic landmark designation, national register listing and tax incentives and preservation easements.

Seminars will be broadcast live on the Museum’s YouTube channel and recordings will be accessible after each program.

There’s no cost to register, but contributions will go toward the Museum’s preservation efforts, including the Mad About Modern Home Tour and the Save Siloam School project. We hope you’ll join us next month! And please pass this great program along to your colleagues and friends who want to learn more about how to preserve Charlotte’s incredible built history.
