The Berkeley Architectural heritage Association was incorporated on 9 December 1974 (with close to 90 members), but the history of architectural preservation begins much earlier.
The story is told in the illustrated article BAHA History by Anthony Bruce.
Thirty years after the photo above was taken, Leslie Freudenheim is putting the final touches on her revised and expanded book, now titled Building With Nature: Inspiration for the Arts & Crafts Home, which will be published by Gibbs Smith in April 2005.
