Highland Restoration Association
COMING FALL 2016 & SPRING 2017
The Highland Restoration Association announces the creation of Restoration University which provides both practical and historical knowledge of restoration design, techniques and appreciation for living in and among historical homes and communities.
Restoration University courses will offer participants a hands-on approach to home ownership and preservation, led by industry professionals and staff. Six courses will be offered annually beginning with three courses in the Fall of 2016. The Spring semester of three courses will commence April 2017.
All classes are tentatively scheduled for Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. and will last 1 to 1 ½ hours. Classes can be paid upon arrival, although space is limited and pre-registration is required to guarantee a seat. Admission to individual classes is $10 for HRA members and $15 for non-members; admission to the entire series of six courses is $50 for HRA members and $75 for non-members. Classes will be held at locations listed in the course descriptions.
Additional information, registration and pre-payment will also be available at our summer general meeting scheduled for July 21 and you can pay online at www.restorehighland.org after the summer meeting.
Developed in the 1890s, the Highland Historic District is one of the oldest and most important residential neighborhoods in Shreveport.
Built on “high land” south of downtown, the district contains a wide variety of architectural styles, from Colonial Revival mansions and Queen Anne cottages to Romanesque churches and one of the finest collections of Craftsman bungalows and foursquares in the state.
