Spring General Meeting - Bonnie Warren Lecture



The Warren Preservation Society is pleased to welcome Elizabeth ("Bonnie") Warren as the speaker at our Spring general meeting which will take place on Thursday, March 15th, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the First United Methodist Church, Church Street, Warren, RI. 

In her presentation  "Has Main Street Gone To The Dogs? "A 40 Year Review on the Transformation of Main Street, Ms. Warren will use historic and contemporary images to illustrate the transformation of Main Street and the building of Warren's truly remarkable public buildings. 

She will trace pioneer restoration efforts along and beyond Main Street; the impact of National Register listing and use of state grants, federal and state tax incentives for historic preservation; the courageous battles to stop demolition along Main Street; and the exciting effort to bring together community interests to chart the future of the Warren waterfront.

Ms. Warren holds a B. A. in Architectural Sciences from Radcliffe College/Harvard University and a certificate in Historic Preservation Planning from Cornell University. She has worked as a city planner for both the cities of Providence and Pawtucket and The Research and Design Institute (REDE).  She helped initiate the Historic Preservation Program at Roger Williams University and is a founder of The Friends of Linden Place and more recently The Friends of Haines Park. In 2000 she retired from the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission.  She continues to volunteer for East Bay historical groups with a recent focus on the renewal of Mount Hope Farm in Bristol.  

The Warren Preservation Society meeting will begin at 6:00 pm with a potluck supper for members and guests.

The General Meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Ms. Warren's presentation will begin at 7 p.m. and will continue for approximately 45-60 minutes. The presentation is open to the public.
