2015 Missouri Preservation Conference

We had a great time in Cape Girardeau last year at our annual Preservation Conference. 2015 was a banner year for the conference, and we were excited to have the participation of many of the students in the Historic Preservation Program at Southeast Missouri State University. Thank you to everyone who contributed, supported, and participated in the conference. We can’t wait to see everyone this year in Hannibal!
