Brun is no stranger to KH having served on the BOD and as president in 2013 & 2014.

“We have such an opportunity to showcase the Historic Westwood property and all it has to offer,” commented Todd Morgan, Executive Director for Knox Heritage. “We are delighted to have Annette on board to help increase the visibility of our beautiful estate and attract a new and engaged audience of community-minded enthusiasts.”

Knox Heritage, founded in 1974, advocates for the preservation of places and structures with historic or cultural significance.
