When you think of historic buildings at risk, visions of heritage train stations, courthouses and other culturally significant buildings come to mind. And sadly, every day these magnificent structures do face the wrecking ball. But, on a smaller, but no less important scale, is the loss of pieces of our own neighborhood history, due to the lack of knowledge of their value and the lack of skill for their care. Wood windows, original flooring and built-in bookcases are demolished every day, destroying architectural features and beauty and reducing home values.

Tampa Preservation, Inc., a private, non-profit organization, established in 1973., is dedicated to the preservation of the historic structures and neighborhoods of the Tampa Bay area and Hillsborough County, and to the education of the  area’s school children and residents about their unique heritage.

TPI’s Historic Home Workshops provide tips from over a dozen experts on how to save these historic materials. This
year’s event will be held at the Historic Seminole Heights United Methodist Church, 6111 N Central Ave on Saturday, April 14 10 am and end at 4 pm. This church, located on the southeast corner of Hanna and Central Avenues was built in 1927 and has its own story of revitalization. Admission to the workshop is free.

“Historic homeowners often wish to take a hands-on approach to restoring their houses. This workshop will offer
information on some of the skills required,” observes Becky Clarke, TPI President. “The homeowner who wishes to hire professionals will come away more educated on what is available and how to best utilize restoration experts.”

Kim and Richard Headland, two architects who own a bungalow in VM Ybor will talk about the mistakes that can be made in renovating an old house and how to rectify some of the worst horrors. Plenty of photographs and personal experience will lead attendees through some lesser known facts on how to restore a home in a manner that is historically appropriate and retains its value, while allowing for modern conveniences.

Other topics to be covered are landscaping, restoring wood windows and refinishing wood floors. Each will provide
information learned from the speakers’ many years of experience.

Last year’s premier event opened with a line of people standing out into the street. Attendees were enthusiastic about
applying what they learned. Their only complaint was that the venue was too small. We have remedied it this year. There will be space for all!

The event will start at 10 am and end at 4 pm. Three workshops will be presented every hour, with a break at for lunch and a chance to chat with the displayers and fellow attendees, and view historic photos from Steve and Mario of The Tampa Natives Show.
