Preservation Network - April 11th 10am - Historic Electrical Systems & Service


 Historic Electrical Systems & Service

Knox Heritage presents the next installment of the monthly series Preservation Network on Saturday, April 11th at 10:00 a.m.  Preservation Network is held at Historic Westwood, 3425 Kingston Pike.  Parking is at Laurel Church of Christ, 3457 Kingston Pike. It is free and open to the public.

 Preservation Network’s April session features Allen Edmondson and Mike Headrick of A.H. Edmondson Electrical Contractor. It can be challenging to install and operate a new electrical system in a historic structure. Learn about the history of electrical systems and common issues and mistakes when dealing with electrical systems in a historic building. Allen and Mike will also answer questions and give a tour of the electrical systems in Historic Westwood.

 Preservation Network is a series of free workshops held once every month on the second Saturday.  Many people have dubbed this the “support group for owners of old homes,” and in many ways this is true.  In a relaxed round-table setting the workshops have presented guest speakers who are specialists in windows, flooring, roofing, stained glass, tile, plumbing, electrical, and more.  Other guest speakers have included those in real estate sales or appraisals, or city codes and zoning officials discussing historic overlays and building requirements.
