LITTLE ROCK—Preserve Arkansas will host a window weatherization and repair workshop on Saturday, September 16, 2017, at the John Lee Webb House at 403 Pleasant Street in Hot Springs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Respected preservationist Bob Yapp of Hannibal, Missouri-based Preservation Resources, Inc., will teach participants how to repair a double-hung, wood window unit from beginning to end.
