How to Research the History of a Building (Extended Education Course)
April 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Would you like to know the story behind your historic home? Or maybe there’s a historic building that you believe deserves to be documented and preserved? Well then, you need to join us for this two-night course with local author, historian, and preservationist Carol Roark. Combining her own research experience with over 20 years as an archivist at the Dallas Public Library, Roark is well positioned to teach you the basic skills necessary to uncover the history of any historic structure. In the first session, you’ll learn about the techniques and historic resources needed to start your own research. Return for a “research check” in session two to review your project and get help with challenges you encountered.
Course dates: April 12 and April 19
Course fee: $25.00
