Program:   “Landmarked That!" Preservation in San Gabriel

Speaker: “Landmarked That!"
Senya Lubisich and Eloy Zarate will present the process of nominating historical properties to the California and National Registers. They will explain the criteria, structure, and protections of a nomination using the examples of La Laguna, which was placed on the National Register in 2016, and the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, whose application is now under review with the State Office for Historic Preservation. They will talk about the roles that community members can play in nominating and protecting the "places that matter".
