CALL TO ACTION – HB 5718 in House Tax Policty Committee May 16, 2018!  Click here for more information. 

Join and get involved with the MI Impact Coalition, as we work to bring back Michigan’s State Rehab Tax Credit.  Senate Bill 469 (S1) passed the Senate on December 13, 2017. House Bill 5178 (HB 5178) has also been introduced to reinstate the Michigan Historic Preservation Tax Credit. These bills would reinstate the popular program that offers a credit of up to 25 percent of rehabilitation expenses against state income tax.

Why are historic houses necessary to their communities? How are historic house museums unique? Participants of this workshop will explore answers to these questions while learning more about management, collections, and interpretation issues specific to house museums. Other discussion topics will include programming; maintenance and security concerns; landscaping; and the development of effective interpretive themes, story lines, and tours.
Presented by Samantha Engel, Whaley Historic House Museum.
