Huron East’s Communities Connected initiative is pleased to present two afternoons of information and education on October 16th and 23rd, 2010, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, at Town Hall in Seaforth designed to assist owners and tenants to refine and polish the hidden gems that are their vintage buildings and storefronts within historic commercial blocks.
Heritage Architect John Rutledge will take attendees Back to the Future to explore and learn about Architectural Heritage, Your Main Street Building and Your Business. This unique two-day seminar will present a plethora of fact and fiction about restoration, renovation, and re-interpretation of the remarkable architecture from days gone by existing on Huron County’s Main Streets. Attendees will learn how to save money, increase equity, and see their historic buildings in a new light.
Participants will find out how to make their building’s history work for them through short and long term planning, priority setting, and phased maintenance — everything from paint and pitfalls, to technology and tax relief, will be covered in these affordable and comprehensive sessions. There’s even a chance to win a professional consultation with John Rutledge.
Historical commercial blocks are a specialty of Rutledge, who enthusiastically shares his extensive knowledge, his interest in the past, and his love of historic architecture.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an expert how to incorporate a rich architectural past into a successful business future. Entrepreneurs, retailers, contractors, and history buffs alike will enjoy what Back to the Future has to offer.
Cost: $40.00 per person (Includes both sessions, handouts & refreshments)
