This one-day symposium is designed to offer current thinking, practical information, and solutions to the challenges facing historic sites.

The symposium will include presentations, discussion, a boxed lunch, historic site visit, and a brainstorming workshop at the historic house museum to try out the new ideas proposed during the symposium.
