The Trust presents educational seminars, such as the current Pope Villa Seminars, as well as PEP/Talks/Preserve Educate Protect, which promote the various ways individuals can contribute to preservation. The Trust also produces educational resources, including special walking tour brochures of Gratz Park, other local historic districts, various sites of architectural interest, and Hopemont, the Hunt-Morgan House (made possible in part by a grant from the Virginia Clark Hagan Foundation).
Pope Villa Seminars are free and open to the public, co-sponsored by UK's College of Design and the Trust, and are held in the H. Foster Pettit Auditorium of the Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan House at 210 N. Broadway. Free on-site parking.
The series of presentations discusses the sociocultural and intellectual contexts in which Benjamin Henry Latrobe’s innovative design for the Lexington building emerged, with an emphasis on content that will inform decisions about its restoration or rehabilitation.
The next talk in the series of Pope Villa Seminars will be on March 22nd. Be sure to check our Calendar of Events for details to be announced.
