Belvedere School

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.

All of the sessions are fun and intense learn-by-doing workshops. Student’s work side-by-side with Bob to gain a thorough understanding of how to efficiently and cost effectively learn a variety of preservation skills. For detailed information, contact Bob.
