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 -
