FLEMINGTON, NJ – Historian Kathleen Galop celebrates the 50th anniversary of preserving structures in America through the Historic Preservation Act with a talk called "Jacqueline Kennedy’s Historic Preservation Legacy."

The program will be held at the Historic Courthouse at 71 Main Street here on May 10 at 7:30 pm.

Little has been told about the instrumental role Jacqueline Kennedy played in creating the climate for the passage of the Historic Preservation Act of 1966. This talk offers a fascinating look behind the scenes of how “Jackie” stopped the bulldozers and set the course for preserving historic structures.

The talk, hosted by the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission, is made possible through funds from the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The program is free and open to the public.

Currently a Fellow at the Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience at the Rutgers campus in Newark, Galop is an attorney with extensive experience and a national reputation in the administration of historic preservation projects for parks and structures. She has served as an advisor, lecturer, author, instructor and fundraiser.
