Two experts will tell the story of the new Kansas University campus historic district at a public presentation this weekend.
Elizabeth Rosin and Vance Kelley, both of whom helped write the nomination for the historic district, will speak from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday in the Community Room at the Watkins Museum of Community History, 1047 Massachusetts St.
Their presentation will include the contents of the new historic district, how organizers decided the boundaries and what the district means for KU’s future.
Rosin is the founder of Rosin Preservation, and Kelley is a principal for Treanor Architects. The event is sponsored by the Historic Mount Oread Friends, the Lawrence Preservation Alliance and the Douglas County Historical Society.
