The "Women in Preservation" virtual speaker series features women from a variety of backgrounds who are working to save historic places in Arkansas and across the country. Our next webinar will feature Holly Hope, Special Projects Historian at the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.
Holly Hope has been with the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program at the Department of Parks, Heritage, and Tourism for 27 years. She writes and edits nominations for the National and Arkansas Register of Historic Places and writes articles and lectures on various aspects of Arkansas history such as the Mixed Masonry homes of Silas Owens, Sr., Arkansas in the New Deal, and home front efforts in Arkansas during WWII. She created the hands-on cemetery preservation program for the public to learn the basics of repairing and cleaning gravestones and lectures on maintenance and safety in cemeteries and how to interpret historic symbolism on gravestones. Holly received her Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
