Sep 17, 2012

The 2012 Kentucky Historic Preservation Conference begins this week in of Princeton.

The two-day conference will include sessions on selling historic properties, best practices for preserving endangered historic sites and converting schools and other public buildings into affordable housing.

Diane Comer with the Kentucky Heritage Council says this is the first year the biennial conference will be held away from a major metropolitan area.

"Even though it’s in a more rural area, these topics I think are of interest to anyone who’s interested in preservation, whether you live in a large urban community like Louisville or whether you live in a small town like Princeton. We really tried to focus on session topics and things that would really appeal to everyone," she said.

Murray Main Street Director Deana Wright will be on WKMS' Sounds Good Tuesday during the noon hour to discuss more about the conference. Include your questions for Wright below in the story's comment bar.

The conference, also sponsored by Preservation Kentucky, begins Thursday.
