Description

Join us for the Providence Preservation Society Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 24, with keynote speaker Thompson Mayes.

Tom Mayes is Vice President and Senior Counsel for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. He is the author of many articles relating to, and has lectured widely on, preservation easements, shipwreck protection, historic house museums, accessibility, preservation public policy, and the future of historic preservation. For many years, he taught historic preservation law at the University of Maryland. A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Rome Prize in Historic Preservation in 2013, Mr. Mayes received his B.A. with honors in History in 1981 and his J.D. in 1985 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and an M.A. in writing from Johns Hopkins University.

“Why Old Places Matter”

Why do old places matter to people? Tom Mayes will explore some of the key insights and new information from his recently published book, Why Old Places Matter (Rowman and Littlefield, 2018). Tom will also discuss potential new directions of research about the deep relationship between people and place, as well as implications for historic preservation.

A ticketed Annual Meeting dinner with speaker Tom Mayes at Waterman Grille (4 Richmond Square) will follow the program.

A special book signing event with Tom Mayes will also take place on Friday, January 25 at Books on the Square from 7 - 8:30 pm.
