There’s more than one way to preserve a two-hundred-year-old building.
Wednesday, July 11
Melanie Rawlins, education specialist at Tumacácori National Historical Park (NHP), delves into the world of archaeological preservation at a national park. Tumacácori NHP protects what remains of three Spanish colonial mission sites. All three were constructed of adobe bricks over two hundred years ago but did not receive the same preservation treatments. Explore the challenges historic earthen buildings present and try your hand at being a preservation decision-maker.
