Thank you to green|spaces Chattanooga for partnering with us again. This is the final program for 2019, so invite a guest to attend with you.
Cornerstones - Preserving Historical Sites
Cornerstones, Chattanooga's only non-profit Historic Preservation Organization, exists to preserve the architectural heritage and urban fabric of Chattanooga. Cornerstones is a catalyst for promoting the importance of restoring the buildings of Chattanooga's past for today's uses, while bringing together the resources required to effect such change. Cornerstones works to conserve and bring new life to the historic buildings and streets of Chattanooga, making them relevant properties of the present. The Cornerstone team seeks to enrich Chattanooga's visual and spatial identity, through the conscious conservation of those historic structures and public streets that are worthy of retention.
Our speaker will be Ann Gray, Executive Director of Cornerstone, with more than 30 years as a Professional Preservationist. Under her leadership, Cornerstones has raised and invested over $8 million into saving downtown historic properties and has seen a return on this investment of approximately $32 million. She holds two undergraduate degrees: History and Sociology and a Master degree in History with an emphasis in Historic Preservation. She sits on the Tennessee Historical Commission Board of Design Review for National Register properties, Tennessee State Library & Archives Friends Board, and formerly served on the Tennessee Preservation Trust Board of Directors.
After the presentation, a small group may have an opportunity to walk over to the historical Chattanooga Choo Choo and see the marvelous dome space.
