The City of Salem, Massachusetts and the Salem Preservation Partners hosted their first event to raise awareness of and discuss adaptation strategies to address climate change impacts on the region’s historic buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods. This two-day workshop included a keynote address by Erin Minnigan of the Preservation Society of Charleston who discussed adaptation strategies employed in Charleston to protect that community’s history and culture; a panel discussion by leading historic property experts who explored their efforts to increase resiliency of historic buildings in a changing climate and walking tours of several historic coastal neighborhoods in Salem.
