If you are a fan of historic preservation, and especially sites like Facebook's Vanished Kalamazoo page, the City of Kalamazoo is hosting another presentation of topics related to historic preservation this Wednesday, May 8th.

The program will be at the Van Duesen Room of the Kalamazoo Public Library starting at 7pm.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about historic preservation work in Kalamazoo and the processes and organizations that perform this work. Presentation topics will also include how the preservation movement started, how historic preservation has impacted Kalamazoo, and upcoming projects such as the Hidden Kalamazoo book, the Grave Issues Squad gravestone inventory at Mountain Home Cemetery, and Old House Owners Workshops scheduled for this summer. - City of Kalamazoo release

That release goes on to say Kalamazoo was among the first communities to identify historic preservation as a tool in planning by appointing its first Commission for Historic Preservation in June 1965.
