This week’s episode features a fun episode with Susan Glimcher of the Advisory Council for Historic Preservation (ACHP). We cover a number of programs that the ACHP administers and a few that I’ve had to pleasure of being involved with. I’ve included links to the various items Susan mentioned in the episode but she also, very graciously offered her email address and would love to connect with you on LinkedIn.  When you connect with Susan on LinkedIn be sure to mention that you heard her on the Tangible Remnants podcast! 

Building spotlight: One of the buildings highlighted on the ACHP’s federal agency preservation outleasing success stories and it is Floyd Bennett Field.  Located in the New York metropolitan area, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981 due to its association with mid-20th century commercial aviation architecture. The field opened in 1931 and served as a point of departure for the record-breaking flights of famous aviators such as Amelia Earhart and Howard Hughes.
