AARCH Webinar Panel: Rethinking Vacant Adirondack Prisons
Adirondack Architectural Heritage Webinar
Adirondack Architectural Heritage is excited to announce that they will host new webinars this winter and early spring! These programs are FREE and open to the public, and will feature a presentation followed by a Q&A period with attendees via Zoom. Pre-registration for each program is required.
The first of these virtual events, detailed below, is Rethinking Vacant Adirondack Prisons happening on February 15 at 6:00 PM.
Sponsored by AARCH and John Brown Lives!, this webinar focuses on currently vacant Adirondack prisons that feature historic buildings, and the communities that emerged in and around these institutions. As the state considers new uses for these storied sites, AARCH will bring together multiple perspectives for a dialog on repairing economic health and social well-being involving communities of New Yorkers affected by these institutions. Our discussion will touch on appropriate interpretation and the adaptive use potential in these sites that will strengthen and restore communities.
