Historic preservation is a movement in planning designed to conserve old buildings and areas in an effort to tie a place’s history to its population and culture. It is also an essential component to green building in that it reuses structures that are already present as opposed to new construction. With Colorado Chautauqua’s commitment to sustainability and resiliency, our efforts related to these two disciplines go hand in hand with our long-standing commitment to historic preservation. The presentation will review CCA’s preservation efforts, the road to National Historic Landmark designation and how preservation has evolved as Chautauqua has evolved.
