Paul Bruhn

Paul Bruhn, Executive Director of The Preservation Trust of Vermont, visited Nantucket in January 2009 to share his ideas and experience about keeping historic downtowns relevant in the face of changing lifestyles and retail climates.

Paul met with various community members to explore downtown Nantucket's special attributes as a gathering place for the community. He also discussed specific strategies that his organization has used in Vermont to preserve and protect key business uses, like general stores, which are the heart of many Vermont small towns.

The Preservation Trust of Vermont was founded in 1980 to initiate, stimulate, and assist local and statewide efforts to preserve and use Vermont's rich collection of historic, architectural, cultural and community resources.
