This Place Matters Honors More Than Landmarks


May is Preservation Month! I'm celebrating with a new This Place Matters photo for The Everly Brothers Childhood Home in Shenandoah, Iowa, and I'm revisiting a photo from 2016 at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. It was the first time either venue had participated, so it was all the more enjoyable to be involved in these inaugural efforts.

According to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, "This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities, and Preservation Month is the perfect time to share it with the world."
