What About Those Covered Buildings?

Register for the webinar.

Covered buildings in historic districts present a number of quandaries. Do buildings with covered facades contribute to districts? Can they? Is it necessary to remove covers from buildings? Using examples and case studies, staff from the National Park Service's Technical Preservation Services and National Register of Historic Places programs will provide answers to some of these tricky questions.
