Preservation in Practice Seminar Series - Kona

June 12, 2019

In June 2019, Historic Hawai‘i Foundation will continue its popular statewide educational seminars to provide training on historic preservation lessons learned from regional preservation case studies.

The half-day seminars will explore local preservation projects sharing lessons learned on best practices, common mistakes to avoid, and helpful tips and guidelines.


Community members and professionals who care about preserving the built and cultural sites that tell the stories of Hawai‘i’s history.


PART ONE shares case studies that examine local projects and include information on the historic property; project goals; needs and threats; parties involved; what happened and lessons learned and advice for others doing a similar project. Each session will present three case studies. After the case studies there will be an audience question and answer session with the presenters.

PART TWO offers interactive breakout sessions facilitated by subject matter experts that present a deeper dive into topics that are part of overall preservation project planning.

Through the training, attendees will learn:

  • Tools and resources for historic preservation
  • Lessons learned on best practices, common mistakes to avoid, and helpful tips and guidelines
