PRESERVING OUR PAST, ENRICHING OUR FUTURE

A Discussion on Historic Preservation in Orleans

When: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 6:30 PM

Where: Snow Library, Marion Craine Room

Join with members of the Orleans Historical Commission for a community discussion on the rich history and heritage of Orleans and the importance of preserving it through our historic buildings and landscapes. The symposium will include an overview of Orleans’ history, beginning not in 1797 when we were incorporated, but thousands of years before. Did you know that there are still nearly 50 buildings in town that were built before 1797 when Orleans became a town? Several of these were built while our land was still a British province. Stop by and learn more. We will also present some direct connections between our land and the Mayflower Pilgrims.

Most importantly, we will discuss the importance of preserving our historic buildings and landscapes, and how we can join together to accomplish it. We are losing our historic treasures at an increasingly alarming rate, and the time for action has come.
