The National Trust for Historic Preservation is highlighting Columbus Landmarks’ work in conjunction with the Weinland Park Community Civic Association’s Housing Committee and Habitat for Humanity – Greater Columbus in their online magazine. Our Field Representative’s work in Weinland Park is being showcased along with other Habitat for Humanity projects across the country related to historic neighborhoods and historic preservation.
It is expected that Habitat for Humanity-Greater Columbus will take its positive experiences with compatible infill design in Weinland Park and apply them in other historic neighborhoods. Habitat already anticipates the same level of concern and collaboration when venturing into rehabilitation work on older houses in the Hilltop neighborhood.
Columbus Landmarks Foundation looks forward to continuing its relationship with Habitat for Humanity – Greater Columbus, including providing technical support for dealing with historic materials in their work related to rehabilitating homes in addition to constructing new homes and participating in neighborhood meetings.
