Preserving old buildings can be difficult and very expensive, so why do we save them? Consider the importance of historic preservation and learn about the Old State House's remarkable story of rescue from destruction. Photos from recent restoration projects will be on view, and visitors will have the opportunity to put on a pair of gloves to get a hands-on experience with historical materials taken from the building for preservation purposes.
