Preservation in Progress: Repointing // from Drayton Hall, a National Trust Historic Site

April 25, 2012: In honor of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Partners in Preservation

Image of preservation efforts in Main House of Drayton Hall. Image labeled as large drawing room. Assumed to be after National Trust acquired property before opening to the public between 1974 and 1977. Charleston County (S.C.)

Even here at the National Trust, we have wide-ranging and disparate definitions of what the word means. Some are in it for the aesthetics. Others for the history. And others still for the environmental benefits. To one person, exposing brick is a breath of fresh air. To another, it's a preservation travesty. And the movement, on the whole, benefits from the checks and balances of a diverse set of passions and definitions.
