In the spring of 2004, HSF’s Education Committee launched the Brown Bag Preservation Talk series. Since then, dozens of preservation topics have been discussed and many miles have been spent exploring Staunton’s streets and alleys. Led by HSF Executive Director Frank Strassler and a host of knowledgeable guest speakers, these informative discussions feature topics that relate to preserving the community, planning, identifying historic architecture, celebrating property rehabilitation, and experiencing neighborhood revitalization.

The Brown Bag Preservation Talks are generally held on the first Friday of each month at noon in the R.R. Smith Center for History and Art 2nd floor lecture hall. The talks are casual, free, and open to the public.
