MAREITTA - Please join the Marietta History Center at this first in a new series of presentations. On Doing History will introduce our guests to a variety of ways people “do” history. Those who work in the fields of history include cemetery preservationists, genealogists, archaeologists, documentarians, archivists, curators, oral historians, historic preservationists, and just plain old historians, among others! This series will provide an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of the experts in this field. Guests will leave with expert advice on how to apply this field to their own lives.
The Marietta History Center June On Doing History is with Stephanie L. Cherry-Farmer, MHP as she talks about her work as the National Register and Survey Program Manager at the Georgia Historic Preservation Division. Stephanie L. Cherry-Farmer joined the staff of the Georgia Historic Preservation Division (HPD) in 2013. As the National Register and Survey Program Manager, she manages the division’s National Register Program, the team of HPD staff responsible for creating the state and nation’s in-perpetuity archive of Georgia’s significant historic resources via listing in the Georgia and National Registers of Historic Places. As the touchstone standard whereby resources are determined “historic,” the National Register program also facilitates tax-incentive supported rehabilitation and Environmental Review eligibility analysis. Stephanie also oversees HPD’s survey program, coordinating diverse efforts to inventory and plan for historic resources statewide.
