Who can owners of old buildings turn to for good advice about problems like wet basements, peeling paint, and deteriorating masonry? The Building Doctors of the of the Ohio History Connection’s State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), that’s who!
Cosponsored locally by Main Street Lorain, the two-day Building Doctor program consists of an evening seminar about common old building issues and best practices for historic preservation. The next day, the Doctors make “(old) house calls” around the community and provide customized advice. In their 40+ years, Building Doctors have made well over a thousand (old) “house calls” across the state.
Old building owners and enthusiasts are welcome to attend! It’s free, but registration is required.
