The Southeast Chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology (APT SE) is a nonprofit educational association promoting the exchange of ideas and knowledge concerning the conservation of historic resources and the application of preservation technology. This interdisciplinary group is intended to serve the needs of preservation enthusiasts in the Southeast United States, including but not limited to, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Since its inception, the chapter has maintained a rigorous agenda. In addition to chapter meetings, members managed the APT display at the 2004 Masters of the Building Arts Festival in Charleston; hosted the 2006 APT Annual Conference “Crossroads in Heritage Conservation” in Atlanta; and provided on-the-ground organization for an APT Workshop on Non-Destructive Evaluation Techniques in Charleston in 2008. The regional chapter has sponsored a program entitled "Historic Preservation for Building Industry Professionals" in conjunction with the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation's Industry Council, where we also helped organize several hands-on workshops; participated in the International Preservation Trades Network Workshop's annual gathering and the Alabama Preservation Conference in Mobile; and contributed to the student scholarship program. Like its parent organization, the Southeast Chapter encourages, promotes, and advances research, training, and the dissemination of information relating to preservation technology and the preservation of buildings, sites, and objects in the southeastern United States. The chapter is in the process of developing technical preservation tours, workshops, symposia, permanent committees, and various preservation-related volunteer opportunities. The chapter welcomes new members and guests to all of its meetings and functions. For membership and event information, please contact Trish Smith ([email protected]) or Amanda Brown ([email protected]).

Sorry this page has been so quiet for a few weeks. We’ve been busy navigating all the things, just like you!
If you haven’t seen this already, NCPTT has been generating very helpful content about disinfecting cultural resources and re-entering cultural heritage sites.

Right now across the Southeast, preservation professionals are gathered in rooms like this to socialize and hear a fascinating discussion of the @menokinfoundation Glass House Project. We do this every three months. You should join us!
Hey, remember last Fall when we were really jazzed about Sam McKelvey’s presentation on Menokin and then a hurricane ruined it?! Well, it’s finally time. Thursday the 5th at 5:30, join our virtual meeting from any host location to hear this much-anticipated program. Don’t know how? Send us a DM and we’ll get you all set up.
It’s the last day of the #aptmiami2019 conference and our notebooks are full of new insights! Some particularly poignant and timely conversations came out of a plenary yesterday on giving voice and agency to diverse publics in preservation practice, and this morning in a roundtable on disaster planning and mitigation for cultural heritage sites. We enjoyed catching up with fellow #aptsechapter members at the chapters breakfast this morning and are more energized than ever to grow our chapter! On that front, did you know that our chapter includes nine southern states, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico? If you have friends or associates in our region who aren’t involved with the chapter, please encourage them to join!
Stellar keynote by Gustavo Araoz tonight and particularly poignant for many of us in the @aptsechapter #tourism #climatechange #resiliency #underrepresentedhistories
We know your calendar is smoking right now with all the upcoming parties, travel, meetings, ugly sweater try-ons...but you’ll want to add our virtual meeting on December 5th at 5:30. Jack Pyburn and David Steele will be telling us about their work with the Birmingham National Civil Rights Monument. We hope to see you all at this virtual meeting! Bonus points if you’re wearing a festive (read: hideous) sweater! Don’t know how to join the virtual meeting? DM us for info.
Due to impacts from Hurricane Dorian, we are canceling our Thursday virtual meeting. Everyone stay safe out there, and we’ll be in touch about rescheduling soon!
It’s a rainy day for many of you in #aptse and for the rest of you it’s probably too hot to go out, right? Perfect opportunity to enjoy our favorite books! Help your fellow preservation professionals out and drop some recommendations below! (Thank you Ed Chappell for recommending this one!)
Hey, APT Southeast! If you’re on our mailing list you know that our next virtual meeting is September 5th and we’ll be hearing from Sam McKelvey about “The Glass House Project” at Francis Lightfoot Lee’s 1769 Menokin. We hope you’ll meet up with friends and colleagues at a host location near you or call in from your home or office. You can DM us for more details!
It’s #microscopymonday at Drayton Hall where we’re characterizing aggregates in historic mortars for research on chimney stacks that survive around the property. In the process we’re learning more about the African American community at Drayton Hall in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. What are you working on this week? #aptse #draytonhall #historicmortar #vernaculararchitecture #architecture #historicpreservation #trustsites #historygram #blackhistory
Happy first day of summer! We hope you’re keeping to the shade like this extraordinary house! Welcome to Hutchinson House, the c. 1885 home of Henry and Rosa Swinton Hutchinson. Hutchinson’s father, James, was enslaved until he won his freedom fighting for the Union Navy in the Civil War. James prospered following the war, purchasing several tracts of land on Edisto Island, but was murdered in 1882. His son Henry also prospered in the Reconstruction era and built this house around the time of his marriage to Rosa Swinton. Their descendants lived in the house until the 1980s and retained ownership of the property until 2016, when they sold the house to the Edisto Island Open Land Trust. John Girault, the organization’s executive director, has worked with numerous preservation organizations to chart a course for this important site, beginning with its stabilization. Interior and exterior framing support the structure while a massive tent protects it from the elements. With the exception of hurricanes, of course. We asked John about that during a recent visit. “We have to take the cover down,” he said, “or run the risk of it pulling the whole house over.” John and his team have made great strides for the property, but he admits that building preservation isn’t his thing and welcomes input from #APTSE members. If you’d like to see how you can help, drop a comment or DM us!
#APTSE is committed to encouraging and promoting preservation training in the Southeast. So we were thrilled to see these photos from @gsu_mhp They visited Escuela Taller de la Habana in Cuba, a school that specializes in training students for historic building trades. It’s great to see these students learning traditional crafts such as plaster and masonry repair!

Send in the drones! City Preservationist of Huntsville, Katie Stamps, shared these images of a c. 1928 neoclassical revival dwelling where the Huntsville Historic Preservation Commission used a drone to get a closer look at its deteriorating clay tile roof. The owner wanted to replace with architectural shingles but HHPC was able to convince him to source replacement clay tiles. Have a recent preservation win to share with your fellow preservationists in the Southeast? Tag them #aptse or DM us!
It’s #wireframewednesday That’s a thing, right? What are you working on today? We’d love to share it!

Scott Messer, the Director of Historic Preservation in the Office of University Architects for Facilities Planning at the University of Georgia, will speak on the process of the University of Georgia Master Plan for Historic Preservation.
Scott is a practicing preservation professional with 20 years of experience with private and public historic preservation projects. A 1996 graduate of University of Georgia’s Masters of Historic Preservation program, he currently works for the University of Georgia’s Office of the University Architects as the Director of Historic Preservation. In his 18 years with the Architect’s office, he has directed numerous award winning rehabilitation, restoration, and new contextual construction projects throughout the University system. Scott is also the Campus Preservation Officer for the University with responsibility for archaeological and historic preservation quality control and compliance across the University’s facilities statewide.
The Historic Preservation Master Plan is a combination of inventory and standard operating procedures to direct the University in compliance with the Georgia Environmental Policy Act and the State Stewardship law. Because UGA is a statewide entity, the plan touches many resources throughout the state, in addition to the main Athens campus.
