Historic Preservation Courses Offered on Nantucket Island This Summer
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - HABS, Nantucket, Preservation, Field Studies, college credits
Contributed By: Jean Dolan
Website: http://www.bucks.edu

For the first time, Bucks County Community College’s award-winning Historic Preservation program is offering two courses this summer in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
 
The BCCC Summer Preservation Institute takes place August 3 – 17 at the Preservation Institute: Nantucket, a World Heritage Research and Stewardship center owned by the University of Florida.
 
Students have the chance to earn six credits over two weeks, as each three-credit course will be offered in an intense, one-week format. Historic American Building Survey Workshop takes place August 3 – 10, followed by Preservation Field Studies August 10 – 17.  Classes will be limited to 10 students per class. 
 
“These courses offer each student a superb experiential educational opportunity in an historic setting,” explains Pat Fisher-Olson, coordinator of the Historic Preservation Program at Bucks. “They’ll get to see first-hand how these structures are challenged daily by severe atmospheric conditions on the island.” 
 
Each course runs for seven days, from Saturday afternoon to Saturday morning. In the first class, Historic American Building Survey (HABS) Workshop, a team of students will hand draw a rendering of a landmark Nantucket beach cedar shake house for their course project.  A program of the National Park Service, HABS utilizes the most accepted and archival documentation standards for historical buildings. Scaled measured drawings will be produced.
 
In the second course, Preservation Field Studies, students will explore preservation philosophies and methodologies of the built structures of the historic whaling island listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Students will compare and contrast the preservation successes and failures of Bucks County and Nantucket Island.
           
Classes will be taught by Bucks professors Kathryn Auerbach and Pat Fisher-Olsen, who will lead discussions with students, guest lecturers, and local preservationists.  Auerbach and Fisher-Olsen are recipients of the prestigious Charles E. Petersen Prize for measured drawings.
 
Participants will be housed in a University of Florida-owned dormitory located within walking distance from the academic studio.  Housing costs for the week are included in the fee.  Students provide their own transportation and meals, except for a welcome breakfast and closing BBQ dinner.
 
Tuition and room for Bucks County and other Pennsylvania residents is $1,850 for the HABS workshop, and $1,925 for Preservation Field Studies. For out-of-state residents, fees are $2,615 for the HABS workshop, and $2,685 for field studies.
 
The deadline to apply for these unique courses is Friday, April 19. For more information and an application form, visit www.bucks.edu/nantucket.  To learn more, contact Pat Fisher-Olsen at 215-968-8286 or fisherol@bucks.edu.
