Brick by Brick: Building Community Development Through History Series
April 1 - April 15
The Morrison County Historical Society is presenting a series called Brick by Brick: Building Community Development Through History Series.
How do contractors know what a historic building used to look like when they are restoring the façade? How do road builders know whether the land they are planning to pave is free of sensitive archaeological sites? How can business or home owners figure out the history of their properties?
All of these scenarios depend on history that has been collected and preserved by public history museums, including county historical societies. Because each of these scenarios is part of development activities that create a community, history itself plays a major, although not widely known, role in community development.
The Morrison County Historical Society has partnered with a variety of community development professionals to create the online event series.The series features three events focused on different aspects of history’s role in community development:
(Brick One) Thursday, April 1, 1 – 2:30 p.m.: Funding the Upkeep of Existing Buildings: The Little Falls Redevelopment Program.
(Brick Two) Thursday, April 8, 1 – 2:30 p.m.: Tax Incentives for History: The Importance of Historic Tax Credits.
(Brick Three) Thursday, April 15, 1 – 2:30 p.m.: History Is Infrastructure: The Role of History in Community Development.
All three events are free and open to the public. They will be held online via Webex.
Radio: We have a link to this series of discussions at KVSC.org, visit the Area Events page.
