Workshop on historic designation and funding sources May 18

The Washington County Historical Society has invited The Preservation League of NYS to present information about the league’s grant and technical services programs as well as provide an overview of the State and National Registers of Historic Places, historic districts and financial incentives for historic preservation available to historic property owners.

This event will be held at the Historic Salem Courthouse on Thursday, May 18, at 5:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Janna Rudler, the grants and technical services manager at the Preservation League of New York State, will speak on “What you should know about historic designation and funding sources.”

The Preservation League has been the statewide non-profit dedicated to historic preservation advocacy, education and grants since 1974.

Rudler advises non-profits and municipalities in achieving their preservation goals, offers technical support and referrals to all who seek assistance in their preservation efforts and oversees the League’s grant programs.

Her career has taken her from archaeological digs across New York State and directing an archaeology lab to managing an historic house museum. She holds a B.A. in anthropology from Binghamton University and a master of arts in history museum studies from the Cooperstown Graduate Program.

The Historic Salem Courthouse is located at 58 East Broadway, Salem, New York.
