Augustine’s historic downtown will be the site of many of the meetings and special events surrounding the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation’s annual conference.

City Welcomes Florida Trust for Historic Preservation

One would be hard pressed to find another city in Florida whose character, ambiance and tourist based economy is more dependent on historic reservation than St. Augustine. So it is fitting that the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation chose St. Augustine as the site for its 28th Annual Conference.

The Trust, a non-profit corporation founded in 1978, promotes the preservation of Florida’s architectural, historical and archaeological heritage through advocacy, education and historic property stewardship. With a membership of nearly 2,000, the Trust’s annual conference draws over 350 participants each year. The conference being held in St. Augustine is scheduled for May 18-21.

Conference attendees will draw on a wealth of over 30 seminars, workshops, roundtable discussions and tours ranging from topics as diverse as how to secure preservation grants to conservation techniques for paint, plaster and terra cotta. Conference sites include a number of locations throughout the city’s historic districts downtown as well as St. Augustine’s neighborhoods in North City and along Davis Shores. Excursions will include tours along the Matanzas, Tolomato and St. Johns Rivers as well.

Support for the conference has been embraced by over 40 local businesses and individuals from the tourism industry, architects and planners, and citizen’s organizations. The level of support is indicative of how serious the St. Augustine community takes historic preservation and the high esteem in which the community holds the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Trust publishes The Florida Preservationist, a bimonthly newsletter containing legislative updates, preservation news, grant deadline information and is host to the annual Historic Preservation Day held in Tallahassee during the Legislative Session. Since 1983, the Trust has successfully advocated the passage of over 20 major pieces of legislation in support of historic preservation securing millions in aid for projects statewide.
