Pope will explore the methods and practices that make up our present national, state, and local preservation systems, as well as legislation and policies that affect them. Students will learn to apply the theories of preservation, gain exposure to a diverse range of practice and debate in the field, and begin to form their own understanding of the subject.

Sarah Pope holds a master’s degree in historic preservation from the University of Georgia, and came to Menokin in 2005. Her 20 years of experience in the field include work for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Park Service, and the Virginia Main Street program.
