Preserving Historic Places: Indiana's Statewide Preservation Conference

DHPA partners with Indiana University and Indiana Landmarks to host this annual statewide conference which serves as the official forum for preservation issues in Indiana.

Cemetery Preservation Workshop

GravestoneThere are no state laws that describe the techniques for preservation of cemeteries and gravestones. There are best practices and standards to meet to assure that you are preserving the site in a way that will not eventually lead to damage. Each year the Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology co-sponsors with the Indiana Historical Society a series of workshops to teach the skills needed in cemetery preservation.

Section 106/ Environmental Review Training

These sessions are focused on the "need to know" information for completing environmental reviews in Indiana. Do you want to learn what information to provide to get your review through the process quickly? How do you determine if a property is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places? Did you know Indiana has an online database that you can access from anywhere to do your research?

The next training will be in Vincennes on April 26 as part of Preserving Historic Places: Indiana's Statewide Preservation Conference. Registration opens Feb. 1. The workshop is free, but you must register through the conference using the conference registration form.

Indiana Women's History Conference

The bicentennial of statehood provides an ideal opportunity to discuss and analyze the many contributions of women’s work to Indiana history. Thus, the Indiana Historical Bureau, the Indiana State Library, and DNR-DHPA will host “Hoosier Woman at Work,” a women’s history symposium, on March 26, 2016, at the Indiana State Library and Historical Building in downtown Indianapolis.

This one-day conference will explore and expand knowledge of women’s contributions to Indiana through their labor via speakers, presentations and panel discussions.

Cost is $20 and includes lunch.

To register, contact Jeannie Regan-Dinius at jrdinius@dnr.IN.gov or (317) 234-1268.
