Do your part to protect old homes' history

Got an old house? Or just like digging through history? Check out the Old House Trade Show this weekend at the Holiday Inn by the Bay on Spring Street in Portland.

Put together by Greater Portland Landmarks, the show gets historic restorers, tradespeople, and craftsmen and -women together with owners of older homes to talk about how to keep things working to modern standards while following the historic aesthetics that are so well-loved.

There will be demonstrations, opportunities to ask experts about the weirdo problems that only your house probably has, and all kinds of opportunities to talk with other owners and workers who love old houses as much as you do.

It's a cool way to help preserve history, and GPL are a pretty good group, working to protect Portland's architectural history. It's just $12, and you can buy tickets online at portlandlandmarks.org.

The show runs from 10 am to 5 pm Saturday, and 10 am to 4 pm Sunday. (A $12 ticket, which you can buy online at portlandlandmarks.org, is good for both days. And there's a $2 discount if you buy by tomorrow - Wednesday!)
