Preservation Network - January 10th - Methods & Tips on Reseaching Historic Properties


 Hollie Cook & Arin Streeter Reviews Methods and Tips on Researching Historic Properties

 Knox Heritage presents the next installment of the monthly series Preservation Network on Saturday, January 10th 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. And Arin Streeter, designer at Brewer Ingram Fuller Architects, Inc. Ms. Cook and Mr. Streeter will review methods and tips on researching historic properties.  This session will be particularly useful for anyone owning a historic home and who is interested in learning the year it was built, previous owners of the home, 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.

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 with coffee, smoothies, and other goodies, 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.
