Historic Preservation in Cary: Past, Present and Future…

Kris Carmichael will discuss historic preservation in Cary beginning with the Page-Walker Hotel and the public/private partnership that not only saved it but repurposed it to become an art and history center.  Kris will also describe other successful models including transforming the old Cary High School into the Cary Arts Center and the restoring the Cary Theater, which came full circle to return to its original function.

Gillian White will discuss current preservation projects, including the relocation of the Nancy Jones House. She will also touch on the future of preservation in Cary and how it benefits our community.
