(Frederick, Okla.) – For anyone interested in learning more about building preservation, Frederick Main Street will host “Historic Building Maintenance,” a workshop on the care and maintenance of the historic district, September 26th, from 12:00pm – 1:00pm, at the BancFirst Conference Center.
Guest speaker will be Oklahoma Main Street Architect, Larry Lucas. Lucas will discuss common ‘delayed maintenance’ issues and ‘inappropriate materials’ concerns found across the Oklahoma Main Street network. Participants will receive guidance on utilizing the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, as well as developing a regular maintenance calendar that could be used for virtually any building.
“We hope to give the people attending a real sense of the historic treasures around them, and to help them develop the best plan for caring for them,” said Lucas.
Following the workshop, Lucas will conduct one-on-one design consultations with local building and business owners.
Cacy Caldwell, Frederick Main Street volunteer, said the workshop is needed for many property owners in the area and hopes building owners will be able to use this information to preserve their buildings and the history of the area.
The workshop, which is open to the public, costs $5 and includes lunch. Interested individuals may contact Cacy at (580) 335-1499 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, to RSVP or to schedule your one-on-one consultation.
