The public is invited to attend a presentation by the key authors of the KU Campus Historic District nomination. This presentation by Elizabeth Rosin and Vance Kelly will cover exactly what is included in the new KU Campus Historic District and what it means for the future of KU. High points include an overview of the district, the process and decisions that were made in drawing the district boundaries, and how becoming a National Register District will impact future development on campus. Elizabeth Rosin, founder of Rosin Preservation, has worked in a broad spectrum of preservation activities, including historic resource surveys, thematic studies, preservation plans and nominations to historic registers. Vance Kelley has dedicated his career to the preservation of historic buildings. As a principal at Treanor Architects, he leads all of the firm’s historic preservation projects, including the ongoing preservation and restoration of the historic Kansas Statehouse. He currently serves on the Board of Advisors for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This program is presented as a partnership between Historic Mount Oread Friends, Lawrence Preservation Alliance and the Douglas County Historical Society, three Lawrence nonprofits devoted to understanding and protecting our shared history and cultural resources.
