Saturday brings Historic Preservation 101
The Berkeley County Historic Landmarks Commission in conjunction with the West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office and the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions is hosting a workshop entitled, “Historic Preservation: How to Guide Potential Buyers of Historic Properties.”
The workshop will cover myths and facts about historic buildings; typical architectural styles found throughout the state; sustainability and green energy in historic buildings; and financial incentives available to historic property owners.
The workshop earns seven hours of Continuing Education credit from the West Virginia Real Estate Commission for qualified real estate professionals.
The workshop speakers are Robin Zeigler and Jennifer Brennan. Zeigler is a former senior historic preservation planner for the Planning Division of the Salt Lake City (Utah) Corp., and former preservation planner for the city of Bowling Green, Ky., now serving on the staff of the Nashville-Davidson County Metropolitan Historic Zoning Commission.
Brennan is the Assistant Director of the WVSHPO and a certified local government coordinator who works with property owners on the financial incentives available to historic property owners.
The free workshop will be held Saturday in the County Council chambers of the Dunn Building at 400 W. Stephen St. in Martinsburg and begins at 9 a.m. with the doors opening at 8:30 a.m.
