MAE BOWLEY

Deconstruction & Preservation:
Reclaiming History One Board at a Time

THURSDAY,  MAY 19 | 6:00 PM

Mae Bowley, Executive Director of Re:Purpose Savannah will give a presentation titled Deconstruction & Preservation: Reclaiming History One Board at a Time. The inherent value in a historic structure goes beyond the object itself; there is great value in the history of the structure, in the stories of the lives that passed through its walls, and in the heritage materials from which it was built. Mae will share with us how the Re:Purpose Savannah team provides conscientious treatments for historic buildings at the end of their life cycle.

This event is open to the public; however, space is limited, so reservations are recommended. Attendance is free for HSF members and $10 for non-members. Members may RSVP by emailing Kimberly Newbold at knewbold@myhsf.org. For more information or for non-member registration, visit our website at myhsf.org.

The lecture will take place at HSF headquarters at 321 E. York Street. There will be a pre-lecture gathering at 5:30 p.m. for wine and socializing.
