Preservation Delaware is pleased to welcome Robin Krawitz to the staff in the position of Southern Delaware Field Representative. A 13-year veteran of the Delaware State Historic Preservation Office, Ms. Krawitz recently returned to Delaware from upstate New York to accept the position which is generously funded through a matching grant from the Partners in the Field Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “I’m thrilled to be back, working with Preservation Delaware and with all the wonderful folks in Southern Delaware who are working to save our rich and diverse heritage,” says Robin.
Robin brings special expertise in documentation of historic properties, the federal historic preservation program and working with local governments. Her career-long interest in African American heritage has led Robin to special knowledge and expertise in the history of African American education in Delaware, including extensive study of Delaware’s duPont Schools, and documenting the Underground Railroad in Delaware through her work with the Underground Railroad Coalition of Delaware. In addition, she serves on the board of the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions, the national mission-oriented organization focused on supporting, educating and training local preservation commissioners. Robin is also working with Delaware State University to build the Master of Arts in Historic Preservation program in the Department of History, Political Science and Philosophy.
Preservation Delaware gratefully acknowledges the support of Delaware State University for providing office space for the Southern Delaware Field Office for Preservation Delaware in Room 207 in the ETV Building on the main campus in Dover.
