Join Sally Oldham, architectural historian and board member of Greater Portland Landmarks, as she leads a timely discussion on the changing face of historic preservation at the Falmouth Library.

The basis for the conversation will be, Why Preservation Matters by University of Massachusetts, Amherst Professor Max Page. In his book, Page argues that preservation is no longer just about old buildings— instead, he believes that the movement must transform itself to stand against gentrification, work more closely with the environmental sustainability movement, and challenge societies to confront their pasts.This program is offered in conjunction with Greater Portland Landmarks who will host a keynote lecture by on May 9 at the Portland First Parish Church.
