As part of the monthly program series of The Glens Falls-Saratoga Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club, and co-sponsored by Saratoga Springs Public Library, join us for “The Irresistibility of Historic Preservation” presented by Steven Engelhart, Executive Director of Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH). 

2016 marked the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act. This program is a general introduction to understanding the importance of preserving our nation's built environment. Using illustrations from all over the eastern seaboard and from the Adirondack region, it explores the many reasons that individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments are increasingly involved in promoting historic preservation, because preserving architecture adds beauty to our lives, connect us to our past, fosters community and national identity, contributes to community revitalization, helps to conserve energy, and is part of how we manage change and growth in an increasingly chaotic world. Irresistible, right?
