Acclaimed preservationist, author, and professor Anthony Wood paid a visit this week to Charleston, South Carolina, where he serves as Chairman of the Drayton Hall Site Council. Click here for a link to Drayton Hall and to learn more about the innovative work taking place there. Thanks to Drayton Hall's incredible leadershipand staff, including Carter Hudgins (Interim Director of Preservation) and Craig Tuminaro (Director of Museum Interpretation), visitors--including my historic preservation law students--encounter everything from the latest in architectural history and archaeology to conservation easements, historic agriculture, landscapes, and horticulture.
In an earlier post, I mentioned Mr. Wood's book, Preserving New York, a thoroughly researched and fascinating account of the evolution of the preservation movement in New York City. The book is purposely city-specific, but the lessons learned in the Big Apple transcend its boundaries. It will serve as one of my supplemental texts in historic preservation law in Charleston next semester.
Over dinner at F.I.G. last night, a great culinary stop in Charleston for you Slow Food types, Mr. Wood told our group, among other things, about the work of the New York Preservation Archive Project and a recent amicus brief filed by the Municipal Arts Society in the New York Supreme Court. Stay tuned for more information about these historic preservation efforts in future posts.
