Before & After: Discoveries in Historic Preservation, a presentation by Dan Campbell, 7pm on Thursday, April 21, 2022

The Gaslight News #182 published in January 2020 an announcement of Dan Campbell’s March 26 presentation.

Meanwhile, a scientist in China confirmed that a mysterious new pneumonia-like illness identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, could be transmitted from human to human. The US saw its first case of the disease, later named COVID-19. By February, cases of COVID-19 multiplied around the world, and by March, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic.

The presentation never happened, and we haven’t held a General Membership Meeting since.

After a 25-month delay caused by COVID restrictions, we are pleased to announce that Dan has graciously agreed to give his talk on April 21, 2022, at Riverton Free Library.

Daniel Campbell, AIA, is a widely recognized multi-state licensed architect whose specialty is the restoration and preservation of historic architecture. He is also a past HSR president and former Gaslight News editor.

During his eighteen years in Riverton, Mr. Campbell restored and rehabilitated his residence at 16 Carriage House Lane while designing four new residences.

Dan was part of the Riverton Steamboat Landing Foundation Project Team that completed the restoration of the Riverton Yacht Club. The project won a 2001 NJ State Historic Preservation Project Award.

In 1999, after several years of careful and exhaustive research by Society members and the Borough led by Daniel Campbell, Keith Betten, and Betty Hahle, the National Register of Historic Places designated Riverton Historic District.

Mr. Campbell’s 40-slide PowerPoint incorporates many detailed drawings and photos of projects he has executed over his career in PA, NJ (including Riverton), DE, MD, & SC.
