From the President
We are committed to our Mission Statement to preserve and promote interest in Georgetown heritage – its historic buildings and sites as well as the people associated with them. We are extremely fortunate that a steadfast community, a supportive City government and a strong membership keep the ideals and realities of preservation alive.
We contribute to our history on a daily basis. We are mindful that the strides forward, all the progress made, is easily at risk. We encourage progress balanced with preservation.
‘Georgetown is a good place to live’ boasts propaganda from a 1927 stock certificate. Eighty-five years later we are proud to relay the same message. “Georgetown is a good place to live” and 2012 holds great promise for historic Georgetown and the Georgetown Heritage Society.
GHS looks forward to timely new programs, projects and events to reflect the vitality of historic Georgetown. Preservation cannot succeed without belief. It cannot flourish without participation. We, every generation, every part of the community, must work together – appreciating what has been done and being ever mindful of what lies ahead.
Our mission succeeds through education, involvement and engagement. Please join us in our work to preserve the past for future generations.
We look forward to seeing you often and active!!
Susan Firth - President
