Every historic building has a story to tell, but sometimes we need help tuning in to what they have to say. That’s why the Native Daughters of the Golden West Parlor 210 (founded in Fort Bragg in 1916) has arranged the 9th Annual Heritage Days Talk, “Listening To Our Historic Buildings.” The free program takes place Saturday, May 12, 10:30 am, at the Fort Bragg Town Hall, Main and Laurel Streets. Town Hall was built one hundred years ago as the Fort Bragg Commercial Bank.
The talk features two experts: Mark Huck, Restoration Architect, State Office of Historic Preservation, and historian David Foucheaux.
Mark’s career spans 30 years, and his specialty is using tax credits to restore Historic Buildings. Aided by historic photos, his talk will cover a broad range of trends in Heritage Preservation including “Sustainability.” David, a fifth generation expert on the history of Fort Bragg, will share stories of the City’s old buildings. After their discussion of the kinds of things our historic buildings tell us, and sharing tips for “listening”, both Mark and David will happily entertain questions from the audience.
