Training Opportunities at the Belvedere School

Training Opportunities at the Belvedere School


Longtime PTN member Bob Yapp founded the Belvedere School for Historic Preservation in July of 2008. The school is dedicated to teaching students from all over North America how to become artisans in the preservation trades.

Over the last 20 years Bob has traveled across the country conducting hands-on preservation workshops as well as helping other organizations and communities to set up preservation schools and training programs. He has been involved in the hands-on rehab of over 160 endangered, historic properties over his career. 

The school is located in the historic Lamb-Munger House at 521 Bird Street in Hannibal, Missouri. Hannibal is a very historic Mississippi River town and the childhood home of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain.
