Lecture: Lee Adler: Making Preservation Work

When: Thu., Feb. 25, 5:30 p.m. 2016

Perhaps being the son of one of the famed “Seven Ladies” who saved the Davenport House meant that Lee Adler had preservation in his genes. Whether true or not, Adler came to represent all that was right about Savannah’s preservation movement: the innovative Revolving Fund, neighborhood preservation approaches, intelligent low-cost rentals in historic districts, and the toughest obstacle – Broughton Street. Fellow preservationist Kathy Ledvina explains how Adler made magic happen in Savannah’s quest to maintain its urban plan and architectural integrity.
