Village Preservation 30th Birthday Party

Come to Village Preservation’s 30th birthday party! Learn how a small group of preservationists started an organization with an awkward name. See how that group grew from protecting single buildings to protecting entire neighborhoods—and gained an impossible acronym along the way. Speakers include: Elinor Ratner, an early Trustee and long-time treasurer, Martin Hutner, who joined the board in 1984 and remained a Trustee for twelve years, and current Trustees John Bacon and Leslie Mason. Presentation will include historic photographs, before and after images, and interesting tidbits from Village Preservation’s past. And birthday cake!
