Historic preservation show coming to city

Restoration 96, a major trade show for companies and individuals involved in the preservation of historical buildings and objects, will be held in Baltimore March 17-19. More than 275 companies are expected. Last year's show in Boston attracted 10,000 people.

Next month's event will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center. It will offer exhibits, conferences, workshops, demonstrations and technical training.

Some of the sessions on homes will deal with Post-Victorian house styles, kitchen renovation, and inspections. One of the speakers scheduled for the session on rowhouses is Baltimore architect Roger L. Katzenberg. Matthew Mosca, a Baltimore-based paint analyst, will help conduct sessions on historic paint analysis and the conservation of interior ornament.

Graham Banks of Baltimore will speak at a session on decorative plaster.

The pre-registration deadline is Tuesday.
