Historic Preservation and Aging in Place

June 26, 2014

In what may be the first ever attempt to explore the relationship between historic preservation and aging/disability issues, the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance joined forces with Indiana Landmarks to conduct a day-long conference on the topic at Landmarks headquarters in Indianapolis on June 26, 2014. Following a welcome by Marsh Davis, President of Indiana Landmarks, Phil Stafford of the Center on Aging and Community offered a introductory talk entitled "Preserving People-Preserving Place." Expert presenters followed with presentations on access modifications to historic homes and commercial properties, welcoming and visitable Main Streets, and financial resources for historic preservation that support age and ability-friendly projects.

This conference was the third in a series of meetings organized by the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance and units of Indiana University. It has been funded through a grant from Grantmakers In Aging, Pfizer Foundation, and numerous local and statewide partners and government agencies.
