jackieoJacqueline Kennedy’s Historic Preservation Legacy
A Lecture by Historic Preservation Consultant  Kathleen Galop
Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 6:30 P.M. Jackie O talk

 

The year 2011 marked the 45th anniversary of the enactment of the Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Great strides in historic preservation have occurred since then, but little has been written or told about the instrumental role played by Jacqueline Kennedy in creating the climate for the passage of that important legislation. This program presents an interesting look behind the scenes of how “Jackie” stopped the bulldozers and set the course for historic preservation. Take a step back in time and see how far we’ve come. This event is free but reservations are required by calling 973-226-2837 or librarian@caldwellpl.org
