Event Navigation

The Oklahoma Historical Society State Historic Preservation Office May workshop series will be held May 8–10, 2019, in the Clark and Kay Musser Learning Lab on the first floor of the Oklahoma History Center.

The Secretary’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings workshop will be Friday, May 10, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The workshop features a discussion of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitation. Generally known as The Standards, these common-sense principles are widely used in the historic preservation field. Whether pursuing the 20 percent federal and 20 percent state tax credits for a certified rehabilitation, planning a rehabilitation project funded with federal assistance, serving on a local historic preservation commission, or rehabilitating your historic private home, you will find the session beneficial. It is designed as a stand-alone workshop and as a companion to Federal and State Tax Incentives for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings.

These workshops are free and open to the public, but we ask that you preregister. Space is limited and will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Register online or by contacting Jesse Matthews at 405-521-6249 or
