Talks & Presentations

Our talks and presentations are a great way to learn and dialog about architecture, preservation, and the communities in our region and beyond! AARCH has presented talks from Herkimer to Chazy, Big Moose Lake to Diamond Point, and many locations in-between. We also partner with many regional and statewide friends and supporters to deliver presentations and webinars on numerous topics that intersect with historic preservation and our work in communities across the Adirondacks.

If you would like to explore a topic with us, speak on a related subject, or share your suggestions, please contact AARCH by email or by phone: (518) 834-9328.
