Story Synopsis:
Dr William Kennedy, a prominent member of the medical
community, has also been one of the leading forces in
Jonesborough’s forty-year historic preservation movement.  
This series introduces the doctor in relation to his passion for
renovation and the adaptive reuse of historic Jonesborough,
the role the town and the Historic Zoning Commission has
played since interests arose in the 1970s, and as he defines
the approach and current beliefs related to the responsible
preservation of this community’s historical relevance.

The series begins with a montage of 'before and after'
photographs – many of which are from Dr Kennedy’s public
collection, the Paul Fink collection, and other such images
graciously provided by the Heritage Alliance of Jonesborough.  
It should be noted that throughout this series, the H.A.
images are a priceless contribution to the telling of Dr Kennedy’
s story, and that without the Alliance’s generosity our films
would be conspicuously empty of their current visual richness.  
(We all thank the Heritage Alliance, and in fact, all heritage
institutions for their essential services: Please help them to
continue their good works in any way you find possible.)  A
short biographical segment follows the montage that explores
Dr Kennedy’s long relationship with both the town of
Jonesborough and its preservation movement.  He deftly
introduces the Historic Zoning Commission and its role in
Jonesborough’s effort to redefine itself and thrive as it builds
its future on its past.  

The subsequent three films explore major themes in detail;
whereas, the Sabin House and Eureka Inn videos are case in
point examples of modern preservationist efforts.
