Summer 2012


Landmarks Illinois partnered with the historic preservation commissions of Moline (Saturday, July 14) and Normal (Saturday, August 11) to host two hands-on workshops. The workshops were a training opportunity for contractors, carpenters and homeowners about wood and steel window repair and lead paint remediation for home or business.


The workshops followed all lead safe procedures and work methods from the National Park Service Preservation Briefs #9-#13. Briefs online at www.nps.gov/tps/.
