The Iowa State Historic Preservation Office is proud to present the 2022 Preserve Iowa Summit!
Registration is now open for the state’s premier conference for professionals and volunteers involved in historic preservation. Through expert presentations, workshops and tours, participants will learn new ways to preserve Iowa’s past for the future.
The 2022 summit will take place in Mason City, which Condé Nast Traveler listed among the world's best cities for architecture lovers, right up there with Miami, Paris and Dubai. Locals are justly proud of their Prairie School landmarks, including Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic hotel, and encourages visitors to explore everything the city has to offer.
The three-day program starts Thursday with some inspiration – an awards ceremony to honor the Preservation Projects of Merit, Excellence in Historic Preservation & Archaeology awards, and Preservation Iowa’s “Preservation At Its Best” – and wraps up Saturday with a round of how-to sessions specially designed for Iowans who work or volunteer at local historical societies and history museums across the state.
