The University of Minnesota, Morris and the State Historic Preservation Office of the Minnesota Historical Society hosted a unique two-day conference to share best practices for historic campus planning and preservation in the Upper Midwest.
The conference was designed for facilities managers, planners, plant services staff, and others from colleges, universities and other campuses in Minnesota (and our neighbors) with historic buildings and landscapes.
The campus is believed to be the first and most intact campus planned by Morell and Nichols, Minnesota landscape architects, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
This conference was funded in part by the Getty Grant Program as part of its Campus Heritage Preservation Initiative, with additional support from UMM and the State Historic Preservation Office. The Getty Grant Program has awarded grants to support the architectural preservation needs of historic buildings, sites and landscapes on college and university campuses across the U.S. as part of its Campus Heritage Preservation Initiative. The initiative provides funds for activities that help colleges and universities identify, assess and plan for the preservation of their significant historic resources.
