Historic Preservation Presentation Oct. 5

HHPS board member Jo-Anne Peck will provide an overview presentation in Historic Preservation Oct. 5 at 6:30pm. at 201 Howell Street in Brooksville. The lecture will go over the Who, What, Where and Whys of Preserving Historic Buildings.

Jo-Anne Peck is a Historic Preservation Consultant who has focused on Florida history and architecture for over 20 years.

Starting in 1999, she began working on the Tampa Interstate Study project which involved the relocation and renovation of 64 historic buildings with Ybor City, Tampa Heights, and West Tampa.

Having realized her ultimate preservation project, she and her husband took a side path and created Historic Shed, a custom outbuilding design and build company that creates attractive garden sheds, garages, and cottages that complement historic homes.

Ms. Peck has an undergraduate degree in Building Science, a Master’s of Fine Arts in Historic Preservation, and is a licensed Florida Building Contractor. She has found designing and building little structures even more fun than expected, and has lived in Hernando County since 2006.
