Philmont’s History & Survey
Presented by preservationist consultant, Jessie Ravage.
The presentation will cover Ravage’s experience of assembling the Cultural Resources Survey, the history of Philmont as a mill town, and her recommendations for creating a Village of Philmont Historic District.

Creating a Village of Philmont Historic District
Presented by Jennifer Betsworth, a Historic Preservation Program Analyst at NYS Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation.
Ms. Betsworth will present a high level presentation of the process involved in creating a Village of Philmont Historic District, what a National Register nomination entails, a review of the preservation tax credit programs available to property owners, address some of the misconceptions about what a Historic District is and is not, and how the preservation tax credits can assist property owners with repairs to their properties – both interior and exterior.

All are welcome to attend!

The survey was funded by the Preservation League of New York under the Preserve New York program awarded to PBI in 2019 and received funding provided by New York State Department of State under the Brownfield Opportunity Program, (BOA) to the Village of Philmont in 2020.

Preserve New York is a signature grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts and the Preservation League of New York State. Preserve New York is made possible with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
