Two Days of Exciting Conversations
About the Summit
Historic New England’s mission to protect our historic resources and support our neighborhoods could not be timelier and more urgent. We know that preservation works. It enhances livability, reduces waste, gives us beauty and inspiration in our daily lives, and provides charm in our cities and towns which in turn attracts tourism and businesses.
About the Venue
Mechanics Hall is ideally located in the heart of New England in downtown Worcester. For more than 160 years, it has been the cultural cornerstone of central Massachusetts and is regarded as one of the world’s great concert halls for its superb acoustics and beauty.
Preferred rates are offered to Summit attendees at two hotel properties within walking distance of Mechanics Hall. Rooms are available on a first-come first-serve basis until September 12.
Summit discussions will focus on New England while addressing topics that resonate nationally and globally as we work together to transform preservation into an accessible and essential ethic in community sustainability.
