Now that the academic year has wrapped up, I want to alert you to Historic New England’s fall Field School in Preservation Philosophy and Practice, taking place Friday, October 2 through Sunday, October 4, 2015, at the Codman Estate, Lincoln, Mass., the Browne House, Watertown, Mass., and the Lyman Estate, Waltham, Mass.
This highly-regarded program, designed primarily for graduate students in historic preservation and others with a closely-related interest, provides on-site, field exposure to Historic New England’s preservation philosophy at the organization’s own museum properties. Historic New England’s preservation philosophy represents a particularly careful approach to building preservation treatments and reflects the unique history and important architectural record of Historic New England’s 36 museum properties. The Field School supports learning objectives for decision-making on building preservation projects from conditions assessment to project planning, scoping, and treatment.
We hope you will forward this program information to those of your faculty and students who might have a particular interest in attending so that they can begin planning to join us in Boston this coming October. Don’t miss this opportunity for your students to learn first-hand about Historic New England’s approach to preservation. Further information and an agenda are attached.
