Here’s some news that I think you shouldn’t miss. Enjoy!
Pioneer cemetery scan had surprising result: I enjoy when technology like GPR (which is non-invasive to the burials) can be used to show where unmarked burials are, where sunken stones are located, and more.
Cyclorama building at Gettysburg will be demolished: It’s removal will allow the site to be restored to its 1863 appearance. What do you think, good idea or one that removes a different part of the site’s history, it’s interpretational history?
Judge Dismisses Complaint Against City for Denying Prentice Landmark Status: A good summary of everything that has happened thus far in this preservation battle. The judge is allowing the complaint to be amended, so hopefully just a hiccup in getting this building saved.
Country Music Hall of Fame shatters attendance record: I always enjoy sharing a good news story, especially when many museums are struggling to bring up their numbers.
