September 2018 Preservation News & Events
Critical Time for Preservation Advocates

The Interior Appropriations Bill passed the House in July and the Senate in early August, now the differences between the two bills will be worked out in conference committee, including differences in funding levels for historic preservation. The FY19 House Interior Appropriations bill  funds the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) at $101.41 million, while the Senate bill funds the HPF at $91.91 million. 

The House version of the bill raised the HPF to the highest level of HPF funding in history, but the disparity between the House and Senate bills could reduce the victories achieved this summer for continued preservation care. The House also rejected several amendments hostile to historic and cultural resource protections.
 
 
If you have not done so already, thank Representative Michael Turner for his support in putting forth an amendment that raised the overall HPF funding by $5 million.

Urge your Representatives and Senators for continued efforts as the House and Senate debate the final version of the bill this month.



Introducing the National Preservation Partners Network
 

On June 19-22, 2018, the National Preservation Partners Network gathered in Cincinnati for its inaugural meeting as an independent and self-sustaining organization. The National Preservation Partners Network's mission is to advance the growth and effectiveness of the preservation movement through communication, education, training, and a common advocacy agenda. Nearly 50 representatives from more than 24 states and territories attended this initial meeting.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has worked with and supported state and local preservation organizations for more than 40 years-first through the Member Organization Program, lovingly referred to as MOP, and later through the National Trust Partners Program, which was inspired by recommendations from the Nancy Campbell Task Force. The recommendations spurred National Trust president Richard Moe's vision of a professionally staffed, statewide preservation organization in each of the 50 states. After 18 years of work, the National Trust Partners Program nearly achieved that vision. 
 
 

Tax Credit Case Study: Garfield Building

The Garfield Building was completed in 1893 and occupied by National City Bank in 1921. National City eventually expanded into the connected New England Building and occupied much of both structures until the bank was acquired by PNC in 2008. Vacant at the time of application, the building was redeveloped by Millennia Companies into 123 market-rate apartment units plus ground floor commercial spaces.
 
 
Grand Opening of County Archives
 
 
Attend the grand opening of the Cuyahoga County Archives on September 6, from 2-6 p.m. The new space will be freely open to tour after the opening ceremony. The new archives are an effort to make numerous records accessible to the general public, by operating a research center where documents can be studied and inspected on a daily basis, and by providing reference services for those unable to personally visit the Archives.
 
The Cuyahoga County Archives are located at 3951 Perkins Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44114.  
 
   

Country Life in Daisy Hill: 2018 CRS Benefit

 
The Cleveland Restoration Society 2018 Benefit
Roundwood Manor and The Country Club
Sunday, October 21, 2018
Tours of Roundwood from 4- 6:00 pm with Sunday Dinner to follow at 6:30 pm

Take a ride in the country to Hunting Valley as the fall leaves burst with rich color.
The Cleveland Restoration Society invites you to visit Roundwood Manor in Daisy Hill, the country estate of the Van Sweringen brothers. We celebrate Roundwood Manor as the focal point of Daisy Hill Farms. Roundwood is the remarkable country lodge the Vans built to entertain esteemed guests. The Cleveland Restoration Society has nominated Roundwood Manor to the National Register of Historic Places. Lovingly maintained by Sylvia Korey since 1988, we hope the Manor can be preserved for generations through an adaptive use of its historic spaces.
 
Following the Roundwood tour, join us at The Country Club for a traditional Sunday dinner inspired by the season. The Country Club was designed by the Vans' favored architect, Philip Small, whose superb colonial revival design is perfectly maintained to this day. Guests will enjoy silent films and ragtime music while sipping period drinks before the sit down dinner in the main dining room.  A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, see the link below or contact Stephanie Allen at sallen@clevelandrestoration.org.
