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.

The 2014 Annual Meeting of the Northampton Historic Preservation Society was held on December 9th, 2014 at the Mimosa Barn in Cheriton, Virginia. Over 80 people participated in the festive holiday function.
David Brown spoke about how historic preservation is changing in the 21st century. Change can be seen in how people view preservation efforts individually as well as how a landmark might hold a place in a city’s memory. Landmarks are often imbued with meaning, memory and stories. He stated that preservation is about how we impact the relevance of people, how we affect the planet, and the challenge for preservation to represent all people.
The Annual Meeting was held first and resulted in the election of three new Board members: Mary Ann Rice, Nancy Holcomb and Renee Rice.
