About the Event

REGISTER

Is there a building or structure in your town or neighborhood that everyone thinks is an eyesore? Maybe it’s an abandoned industrial building that is a target for vandalism. Perhaps it’s a metal pole shed that is still in use but has seen better days, or an ordinary house with peeling paint and crumbling front steps.

While these structures seem to be good candidates for a wrecking ball, preservation organizations like Rethos: Places Reimagined and state and local history groups take a more nuanced approach. How do preservation organizations determine what structures are worth the time, effort and money to save?

Join Rethos and the Morrison County Historical Society (MCHS) for Think Before You Knock: A Conversation on the Importance of Historic Preservation. This online event is a reprise of an event created by MCHS that was held a few years ago.

Think Before You Knock will feature a discussion about various structures in Central Minnesota, some of them selected by historian Bill Morgan during his many architectural investigations over the years. Leading the conversation will be Mary Warner, executive director of MCHS.
