Preserve Iowa Summit
June 2-4, 2022
The Iowa State Historic Preservation Office is proud to present the 2022 Preserve Iowa Summit!
The annual Preserve Iowa Summit is 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. 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.
Who should attend?
- Historic property owners
- Members of historic preservation commissions
- Historic preservation, planning, interior design and architecture students
- Main Street staff and board members
- Preservation professionals and consultants
- Developers and planning professionals
- Local government officials, community leaders and civic organizations
The summit is a coordinated effort of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs’ State Historic Preservation Office and the city of Mason City. It is funded in part with federal funds from the National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior.
The 2022 Preserve Iowa Summit schedule has yet to be announced. Session proposals for the 2022 Preserve Iowa Summit are now open, and we welcome your ideas. Read the application instructions and submit a session proposal by January 17. Selections will be made in February.
