Recapping The American Historic Trades Summit


Our team is back from Providence, RI where we hosted program leaders, tradespeople, educators, preservationists, and funders from across the country at the first American Historic Trades Summit from June 12-14, 2023. With two full days of sessions, networking, and tours we came together to collaborate, educate, and strategize collective action that will impact the future of historic trades training in America. 

Thank you to our sponsors – The 1772 Foundation, the Driehaus Foundation, GBX Group, National Preservation Partners Network, Heritage Restoration, Sutherland Welles, The Durable Slate Company, Historic New England, and National Trust Insurance Services – and attendees, diverse professionals committed to starting, growing, and supporting historic trades programming in their communities as we work together to preserve the past and invest in the future. 

Please help us carry the success of this year’s Summit forward and let us know what you want to see come out of the Summit and for future convenings – take the survey!
