This blog offers a glimpse into that program.

The textbook developed from the curriculum and lessons: "Masonry History Integrity An Urban
Conservation Primer" is a free download at this web site:

Re: ADC masonry preservation program

... It was a pleasure to meet you at the International Trades Education Symposium (ITES)* in Leadville, CO. I was particularly interested to learn about your work with the Abyssinian Development Corporation's masonry preservation program. To my knowledge,this is the only hands-on preservation training program for high school age students in the country. Keep up the great work.
