"Tools of the Trade"
April 15-17, 2010
The 2010 Arkansas Preservation Conference was hosted by the Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas and the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program. Taking place over two and a half days, the 2010 conference focused on exploring the tools necessary for the successful preservation and continued use of historic and cultural resources. Held in historic Helena, once a booming port town that has faced preservation challenges but that has charted significant victories by capitalizing on the town’s Civil War history and Delta Blues culture, the 2010 conference took a two-track approach in examining tools and best practices to make preservation succeed in one's community.
Back by popular demand, the conference continued to feature Preservation Crustaceans, the annual Heritage Month event featuring crawfish and all the fixin’s in the new Court Square Park. The conference was considered a huge success by all of those involved, and we hope to see everyone at the 2011 Arkansas Preservation Conference.
