The annual dinner meeting for the Northampton Historic Preservation Society was held December 9th at Cheriton, Virginia. The featured guest speaker, Dick (DeCourcy) McIntosh, gave a thought provoking presentation encompassing his life and experiences on the Eastern Shore and an ongoing current public debate that impacts historical preservation: the uses and potential misuses of history. He warned that one must be careful with history and that “historic preservation” should mean preserving history, real history, as well as historical buildings.
