The CPHS Annual Meeting took place on June 27th. Many members joined us virtually! New board members were elected, and the 2021-2022 Officers were announced. See below for details.
We also had the great honor to host our guest speaker Richard W. Longstreth, Professor of American Studies and Director of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, Department of American Studies at George Washington University. Prof. Longstreth has been involved in the preservation field for decades and had an active role in establishing the Cleveland Park Historic District. We were delighted to welcome him back to talk with us about historic preservation in DC and the challenges that lie ahead.
