This blog is a place for dialogue on issues and actions relating to Boston's unique built environment and the preservation and continuing evolution of historic resources within it. My goal, as the Executive Director of the Boston Preservation Alliance, is to post timely, relevant and thought-provoking intelligence, ideas, and insights that will engage conversations, inform our actions, and broaden perspectives on preservation.

We want to hear from you — so start a conversation, share a thought or comment, and let us know what you think.

Preservation Priorities – An AllianceLetter Inspired Discussion

October 31st, 2012  |  Posted by: Greg Galer

The current issue of the Alliance’s newsletter, AllianceLetter, includes three articles that address various aspects of the future of historic preservation:

  • “Preservation: It Isn’t About the Past Anymore – And Probably Never Was,” by David Eisen
  • “Mid-Century Modern is all the Rage and It’s Changing Preservation,” by David Fixler
  • “Historic Houses: Are We Done,” by Carl Nold

What do you think about the future of historic preservation? What should our priorities be?  How do we deal with more modern sites as they become older?  How do we prioritize where to put our limited resources to protect, preserve, and keep historic sites in active use to assure their long-term preservation?
