guide to historic windowsWhat About the Windows? Help Save Them!

Help spread the word and be an advocate for original windows! Useful for HARBS and CLGs, the guide also provides useful information for individual preservationists to advocate for saving historic windows rather than replacing them. 
Preservation Pennsylvania offers a useful how-to guide: "Considering the Repair, Retrofit, and Replacement of Historic Windows."
This project is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office via the Certified Local Government program, and is made possible by cooperation of the Boroughs and HARBs of Gettysburg, Bellefonte and Mercersburg.
