Preserve the ‘Burg is celebrating Preservation Month by hosting a day of educational presentations, free museum admission and more than a dozen local vendors and community groups.

Melissa Wyllie, President and CEO of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, is the keynote speaker for a day of talks that includes topics like researching your historic home, maintaining family photographs (like this absolute gem of a 1925 pier aerial), building an accessory dwelling unit, learning more about affordable housing and more.

Guests can also check out the museum’s latest exhibit during this weekend’s event, since “Civil Rights in the Sunshine State” is on display until June 8.

There's no admission to  Preserve the ‘Burg's Preservation Summit and Expo at St. Petersburg Museum of History on Friday, May 19.
