On Tuesday, July 20th at 6:00 P.M., Dr. Keith Alexander, Associate Professor of History at Shepherd University in conjunction with the Shepherdstown Historic Landmarks Commission, will present “The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation Projects: Underlying Principles and Overview.” The discussion, part of the training for Shepherdstown’s continued status as a Certified Local Government, will be free and open to the public, and will take place on the 2nd floor of the Shepherdstown Community Club (War Memorial Building). Beginning with an overview of key developments in historic preservation thought, the talk will then consider each of the Secretary of the Interior’s Ten Standards for Rehabilitation in more detail, including examples of acceptable and unacceptable practices. The talk is intended for anyone who wants to find out more about the role of the HLC and the principles underlying its work.
