HPRES Students Undertake a Condition Assessment of the Ridge Historical Society

As part of their course HPres 6006 Building Conservation, students from the MS Historic Preservation program undertook a condition assessment of the Ridge Historical Society in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. The students were accompanied by professional mentors from the Association for Preservation Technology Western Great Lakes Chapter. Each student was paired with a practicing preservation architect, engineer, or conservator to review various portions of the building and grounds. A report was prepared and shared with the Ridge Historical Society Board of Directors.
