The segment will end with a review of the resources at the federal, state and local level for information about historic preservation programs. The second day of the program will present overviews of the most common financial incentives available to property owners and communities to encourage and support historic preservation. The overview will include presentations on the 20% federal historic tax credit, California’s new historic tax credit, and programs such as the California’s Mills Act and the California Historical Building Code. The program will end with a presentation on the Secretary of the Interior’s (SOI) Standards and Guidelines, a critical part of the framework of the national preservation program. The SOI Standards and Guidelines are used by every SHPO in the country and by many local governments.

September Book Club Selection:
The Stagecoach in Northern California by Cheryl Anne Stapp
Date: September 29, 2022 Time: 7:00pm
New England stagemen followed thousands of bedazzled gold rushers out west in 1849, carving out the first public overland transportation routes in California. Daring drivers like Hank Monk navigated treacherous terrain, while entrepreneurs such as James Birch, Jared Crandall and Louis McLane founded stagecoach companies traveling from Stockton to the Oregon border and over the formidable Sierra Nevada. Stagecoaches hauling gold from isolated mines to big-city safes were easy targets for highwaymen like Black Bart. Road accidents could end in disaster–coaches even tumbled down mountainsides. Journey back with author Cheryl Anne Stapp to an era before the railroad and automobile arrived and discover the wild history of stagecoach travel in California.
