Speaker: TERRY NECCIAI Founder of the Sq.Hill Historical Society —
Preservation Architect and Architectural Historian
Terry Necciai will speak at the SHHS about several projects he has undertaken since he last lived in Squirrel Hill ten years ago. A preservation architect and architectural historian, he specializes in small community-based projects, museum projects and tax credit certifications. In these projects, he analyzes and documents historic buildings and provides guidance for other architects and owners on how to treat them.
He helped start the Squirrel Hill Historical Society before moving to Maryland in 2002, but now lives in Philadelphia.
The presentation will be illustrated. The projects will include lighthouses, a Civil War Museum, preservation plans for business districts, and a study of farm landscapes. Though scattered around the Mid-Atlantic region, they have surprising connections to Pennsylvania, in most cases specifically to familiar Western Pennsylvania themes.
