Rehabilitation of Your Historic House

Respectful Rehabilitation of Your Historic House

Friday, November 12 — 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

with Cheri LaFlamme Szcodronski, Firefly Preservation Consulting

You can restore your old house without turning it into a museum. In this workshop, an experienced preservation historian will teach you how to renovate your own historic home—retaining its timeless beauty and taking advantage of new preservation tax credits while still making it livable for the twenty-first century.

Researching Your Historic House

If These Walls Could Talk: Researching Your Historic House

Friday, November 12 — 1 to 4 p.m.

with Robert Myers, Historical Society of Michigan

Every house or building has a story to tell. In this workshop, you will learn how to uncover house histories, including who built them and when, their architectural styles, and stories of the families who called them home. After that, you will learn what to do with that information.

Demystifying Museum Registration Methods

Friday, November 19 — 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

with Sarah Humes, Grand Rapids Public Museum

What numbering system should we use? Where do you write the numbers? How do you apply the numbers, and with what? What is Chenhall’s Nomenclature? If these questions sound familiar, this workshop is for you. An experienced registrar will demystify museum registration methods and help you catalog collections the right way.
