Historic Homes Workshop 2013

Planning for this year's Historic Homes Workshop is well underway. This year's theme is Maintaining the Old House. We have 12 speakers lined up to talk about everything from your foundation to your roof, as well as some great vendor exhibits (please contact us if you have a preservation-related business and would like to participate). There are some extra surprises in the works this year as well.

Historic Homes Workshop - Volunteers Needed

Help Support Historic Preservation in the Tampa Bay Area!
The Historic Homes Workshop provides attendees with information, resources and interaction with trade experts to give them the confidence and knowledge to restore and maintain old houses.  It’s a great networking opportunity for anyone, where you can meet and talk with other people interested in preservation.

While we do book speakers and rent booth space for exhibitors, attendees (you!) are the most important part of the workshop.  So how can you participate, and help make this gathering a success?

You’d Like to Volunteer but Can’t?

If you’d like to volunteer to set up tables but your schedule or that bad back just won’t let you, donations of cash or supplies are always welcome.  Historic Homes Workshop is presented by Tampa Preservation, Inc., an all-volunteer organization.  The more we maximize the revenue and minimize the expense of the workshop, the more resources are available for our mission of preservation and education.  

Please make checks out to:
