WVU to Offer Historic Preservation Field School


The 2014 West Virginia University Historic Preservation Field School will be held at Coopers Rock State Forest (CRSF) this May. Field School participants will examine three scales of development within CRSF: the Landscape, Structure, and Detail. Landscape analysis will reveal cultural traces of past land uses and bring to the surface former patterns and elements. Structure analysis will include issues in preserving significant threatened pavilions within the park. Construction Detail analysis will reveal the qualities of construction that physically represent an important era in American history.   The program is suitable for upper level undergraduate and graduate students; as well as practitioners and other interested parties.

See the official Field School Flyer 2014 for more information on the course.
