In With The Old 2020: Preserving Community

The Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance are thrilled to present a reimagined In With The Old for our seventh year! Rather than shy away from the impact that COVID-19 is having on us as people and as preservationists, this year the YFPA has chosen to explore how we’ve been staying connected despite the pandemic. We’ve themed this year’s In With The Old “Preserving Community,” and we look forward to reflecting on our shared community through three nights of programming. Our Parks, our Main Streets, and our Transportation Networks are all sources of connection, and features deserving of deeper thought and appreciation during this time. We look forward to you joining us for one, two, or all three nights of programming!


Thursday, November 12th, 6:30pm - 8:00pm - Main Streets

Our Main Streets are the backbones of our communities. Once upon a time, you could walk downtown and shop at your butcher, your baker, and your candlestick maker, but no more. In the age of Amazon, not to mention our current environment, what can we do to support our downtowns, and the small businesses and historic structures they contain?


The nightly events will be broadcast via Zoom, you'll receive a link to the Zoom event via email approximately 90 minutes prior to the start of each event.
