Come join Maisa Tisdale talk about the founding, growth and mission of the THE MARY & ELIZA FREEMAN CENTER FOR HISTORY AND COMMUNITY in Bridgeport, CT.

Maisa Tisdale has advocated for the preservation of the Mary & Eliza Freeman Houses since 1994, and founded the Mary & Eliza Freeman Center for History and Community in 2009 after coordinating a successful movement to save the homes from demolition. Ms. Tisdale led the Freeman Center as a volunteer until 2019 when she became the Freeman Center’s first professional staff member. Over the past ten years she not only focused on the restoration of the Freeman houses, but has worked to create a safer and healthier “built” environment in Bridgeport’s South End – focusing on historic preservation, community development, and climate change.
