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.
