Delaware's Preservation Community Comes Together

Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

Mayor MastenOn Friday, October 7, 2016, I was invited to a "Historic Preservation Celebration:Past, Present, and Future," held at a converted movie theater in Smyrna, Delaware.   At this building now housing the Painted Stave Distillery, we were welcomed by not only Ron Gomes and Mike Rasmussen of the distillery, but the mayor of Smyrna, the Hon. Joanne Masten.

The State Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs pulled out all the stops by inviting as speakers Dr. John Sprinkle of the National Park Service and Erik Hein, of the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, who updated us on the past and present of preservation in the USA. We also heard from local preservationist, Robin Krawitz of Kim BurdickDelaware State University, and saw one of our own honored. Kim Burdick, the moving force behind Preservation 50 in Delaware and dear Liquid refreshmentfriend, was presented a certificate of appreciation from the State of Delaware, presented by Gwen Davis. Attendees also had a chance to sample the products of the distillery and nosh on some great goodies, courtesy of the State.  Congrats are in order for the Town of Smyrna and their increasingly active preservation and business communities! 

Presented by Your Older and Historic Homes Resource, Carolyn Roland.
