Historic Preservation Graduate Students present their research at the Preservation Alliance Conference held at PSU

Five graduate students in the M.A. Historic Preservation Program presented their research at the March 22nd NH Preservation Alliance conference held at Plymouth State: Audra Klumb presented the NH Fire Lookouts; Lise Moran presented The Athens Old Brick Church in VT; Martha Cummings presented The Preservation and Restoration at the Mary B. Eddy House in Lynn, MA; Dara Dike presented the Ivie Memorial Church in Bethlehem and Mae Williams presented the research on Creating a Sustainable Future for the Laconia State School. Moderated by our historic preservation faculty, Mary Kate Ryan, the panel presentation received high marks from a packed classroom at Boyd. Some of the comments received from the audience hailed the students’ work as “inspiring”, “interesting and a welcome surprise” and “getting young people and students involved was an event that is much anticipated.”
