Love our older buildings and homes and their Hawai‘i charm? So does Historic Hawai‘i Foundation. It will be offering free half-day seminars to the general public on Kaua‘i, O‘ahu and Maui this June. The seminars will share lessons learned through preservation case studies, highlighting best practices, helpful hints, guidelines and how to avoid common mistakes.


The two-part seminars will share three case studies that will be followed by interactive break-out sessions led by experts. Attendees can choose the topic or case study most interesting to them and dive in to learn more. It’s also an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other preservation-minded individuals.
