Message from our President


Dear Members,


Welcome to Upland Heritage’s newly upgraded website.  A lot of effort was put into building the new site and we welcome any comments or advice on how to make it better and serve our member’s needs.  Please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions or suggestions you may have. 

As the newly elected President of Upland Heritage, I would be remiss if I did not thank our past President, Robin Baker, and Vice President, John Atwater, for all their hard work over the past 4 years as officers of the Board and many years beyond that as Board Members and Members. Upland Heritage is made up of volunteers and we are far better off than before with all of the work they invested in our group over the years.

We are very excited about our Historic Home Restoration Workshop which is coming up very soon on October 5th, 2019. There will be many home restoration specialists in attendance along with many like minded folks who love to restore their historic properties.   The agenda for the workshop can be downloaded under Events on this website.  We hope to see you there!

In addition, this is the time of year to fill out your applications for both the Mills Act and also home restoration grants from Upland Heritage.  Please look under the Resources tab in the menu on this website for link to both applications.  Also feel free to call or email us with any questions.

Best Regards,

Kati Parker
