MHT’s Preservation Toolkit

From our friends at the Mississippi Heritage Trust comes an announcement of upcoming workshops from one end of the state to the other: Bay St. Louis, Clarksdale,  Cleveland, Columbus, Corinth, Greenville, Greenwood, Gulfport, Oxford, Pascagoula, aaaaand–whew!–Tupelo.

Want to tackle that daunting rehab project by not sure where to begin?

Join the Mississippi Heritage Trust and instructors Mike Grote and Jonathan Leit with Alembic Development of New Orleans for a Preservation Toolkit Workshop to learn about the fundamental principles of historic preservation and real estate finance. Participants will learn about the legal framework of historic preservation, master basic real estate calculations, and explore how incentives like tax credits can help close the funding gap and bring historic places back to life.

  1. Columbus is last on the list. At the rate the city and county’s “public servants” are tearing down historic buildings, there will not be that much to rehab. Just think, based on all the news that has come out of that city in the past few years, how much they will demolish between now and February.


  2. I wonder what all you’d learn over three days?


  3. Hi Thomas, if you will email me at, I will send you the agenda. Hope you can join us for one of the workshops, Lolly


  4. would like to register for the Cleveland workshop. I cannot find where to do that on line. I called and left a message.
