“The North Shore of Boston, including Salem and surrounding communities, is witnessing first-hand the damaging effects of climate change on historic properties and neighborhoods. Coastal and riverine flooding, wind damage, excessive rain and rising humidity and heat all effect the future of our historic resources. To address these changes and protect the region’s historic resources, preservationists, engineers, city planners, legislators, insurers, historic homeowners and other decision-makers will be tasked to identify and implement adaptation tools to make historic buildings and neighborhoods more resilient and sustainable. This conference will explore these tools including nontraditional solutions, experimental approaches and alternative building materials.”
