Preserve Wyoming 2010 conference will be held May 14-15 in Evanston

From a Wyoming SPCR press release:

Have you ever seen the rehabilitated historic hotels and motels in Buffalo? Or, wondered how Powell’s historic downtown building got all their facades redone?

Have you wondered how your community could use heritage tourism as an income generator? Or, how the windmills of Wyoming relate to the state’s historic trails?

These questions and more will be discussed during the Preserve Wyoming 2010 Conference in Evanston, May 14-15.

This biennial State Historic Preservation Office conference will be hosted by the City of Evanston and held in the newly rehabilitated historic Union Pacific Roundhouse and Machine Shop. (Evanston's Historic Depot is shown in photo above.)

The conference begins with lunch May 14 and concludes with tours of historic sites in the area on May 15.

Registration is $60 and includes all conference meals, including the annual awards banquet honoring recipients of the Wyoming Historic Preservation and Main Street awards.

Complete conference information is available online at http://wyoshpo.state.wy.us. Registration deadline is May 7.
