Historical tours help bring old buildings back to life
on Monday,October 25,2010 21:10
Architects have the honor of creating structures that may be marveled for years. The walking and driving tour presented by the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County focused on C. Emlen Urban this year, bringing his work back to life.
Born in 1863, Urban designed more than 100 public buildings and homes in the Hershey and Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, according to Lancaster Online. Although Urban died in 1939, groups such as the Historic Preservation Trust are dedicated to casting a spotlight on noteworthy architects.
"You just don't know all the treasures hidden in this city," a man on the tour told the news source.
Volunteers were surprised by the number of people who signed up for the tour, but hope the public's general fascination with architecture continues to flourish.
"We've had quite a turnout," tour volunteer, Susan Lovie told the news source. "The beautiful weather certainly helps."
Historical tours, such as the one offered by the preservation trust, are also valuable teaching tools to architectural design students and teachers alike. Architectural design jobs are predicted to increase by 16 percent within the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
