I'm an architect, and I heard there was going to be a preservation conference in Lawrence sometime this year. Has it happened yet?
No. The Statewide Historic Preservation Conference is scheduled for Aug. 2 and 3, at the Masonic Temple, 1001 Mass.; and the Eldridge Hotel, 701 Mass.
The conference -- conducted by the Lawrence Preservation Alliance, Kansas Preservation Alliance and the State Historic Preservation Office -- will feature talks from several professional preservationists, said Dennis Enslinger, the city's historic resources administrator.
Anyone wanting to register or gather more information may contact Enslinger at his office, 832-3151.
