The "Women in Preservation" virtual speaker series features women from a variety of backgrounds who are working to save Arkansas's historic places. Our next webinar will feature Vanessa Norton McKuin, executive director of Historic Cane Hill, Inc. Vanessa Norton McKuin is an Arkansas native with family ties in South Arkansas and in the Ozark Mountains. She first became engaged in historic preservation when her family acquired and restored the May Farmstead in Newton County. Her family’s involvement with the project sparked her passion for historic places and the important stories they embody.
Prior to moving to Northwest Arkansas, Vanessa lived in Little Rock where she was the Director of Development for UA Little Rock Public Radio stations KLRE and KUAR. From 2008-2016, Vanessa was the executive director of Preserve Arkansas. Her work experience also includes the New York Preservation Archive Project, the Old State House Museum, and Norton Arts.
