Preservation Network - Methods & Tips on Researching Historic Properties - Jan 9th


 Hollie Cook Reviews Methods and Tips on Researching Historic Properties

 Knox Heritage presents the next installment of the monthly series Preservation Network on Saturday, January 9th 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 January session features Hollie Cook, Director of Education at Knox Heritage.  Ms. Cook will review methods and tips on researching historic properties. This session will be particularly useful for anyone who owns a historic home and interested in learning the year it was built and information about previous owners of the home, including their occupations and other anecdotal information.  Historic property research is also interesting for anyone wanting to learn more about properties located within the Knoxville City limits or conducting genealogical research.

Preservation Network is a series of free workshops held once every month on the second Saturday. The monthly workshops feature 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 and appraisals, or city codes and zoning officials discussing historic overlays and building requirements.

Knox Heritage preserves, restores and transforms historic places. For everyone. Forever.  The nonprofit organization was founded in 1974 and now serves the entire 16-county Knoxville region.  For more information visit
