All those able to come to Jefferson City *this Tuesday*, *March 24th* should plan on meeting with Jim Farrell, lobbyist for the Missouri Coalition for Historic Preservation and Economic Development, at the *basement-level west entrance* of the Capitol Building at *9:45am *(the basement level is actually a little above ground level on this side of the building – you’ll
see a short staircase leading to a glass doorway).
Here is a link to a map of the capitol; I just spoke with someone there, and if for some reason you get lost, go to the south (main/grand) entrance, go underneath the grand staircase and enter the building – the tour desk is right there, just tell them that you’re looking for the entrance near the
cafeteria (called the Hawthorne Room) and they’ll point you in the right direction.
We all know how important this is to the cultural and economic vitality of our state, not to mention the fact that a significant portion of this listserve will be perpetually unemployed if the historic tax credits die. Please send this to every architect, developer, historian, city-lover, historic main street supporter you can think of! WE NEED TO SHOW THAT WE MEAN IT.
Everyone thank Paul Hohmann for figuring these details out (off-list of course).
