Due to the incredible popularity of this workshop, Preservation Arlington is teaming with the Arlington County Historic Preservation Office, Arlington Central Library – Center for Local History, and the Arlington Historical Society to host a workshop on researching the history of your Arlington home.
Participants who attend the workshop will:
- Learn how to research the history of their own home or any historic property of interest in Arlington
- Use the collection of maps, building permit data, photo archives, and other materials available at the main library’s Center for Local History (CLH) and the Arlington County Historic Preservation Office.
- Be guided through the available resources, no matter their skill level.
The workshop will consist of two parts, starting with an introduction to available resources that will be illustrated through two case studies by Cynthia Liccese-Torres, Coordinator of Arlington’s Historic Preservation Office. Participants will leave the workshop with useful tips for getting started. The second part will consist of a hands-on exploration of historical records in the Center for Local History.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, at the Arlington Central Library Auditorium, 1015 N Quincy Street, Arlington, VA, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. To register for this program, visit the event website, .
