Come hear the story of how the preservation of history and architecture played a fundamental role in the economic revitalization of Key West, Florida, during the years of the Great Depression. This case study of how Key West engendered a new dimension in historic preservation practice, and cultivated an awareness of local history, holds lessons for all of us in historic preservation.
