Thanks to our strong group of Missouri Preservationists, we enjoyed one of the most successful Statewide Preservation Conferences ever! The three-day conference was held in University City, Missouri (St. Louis County) October 24-26, 2012. The main conference venue was the Center of Creative Arts (COCA) at 524 Trinity Avenue. The building was originally occupied as the B’nai Amoona Synagogue, which was designed by world-renowned architect Eric Mendelsohn in 1950 as his first American commission.  To see complete coverage and information click here for the story.
