Chelsea J. Dowell
Director of Communcations and Programming
Chelsea joined GVSHP in May 2016 as Director of Communcations and Programming. Previously,
Chelsea worked at the Green-Wood Historic Fund, promoting the 178-year-old Green-Wood Cemetery through innovative programs, membership, and other cultural projects. During her tenure, Chelsea significantly expanded the cultural events offered and spearheaded popular new initiatives, including a much-publicized beekeeping project on the historic grounds. Chelsea earned her Master’s degree in Historic Preservation from Pratt Institute.
Originally from Buffalo, New York, Chelsea’s hometown engendered an early love of architectural history and urban character. She was drawn early on to the story of Buffalo’s rise and fall, and the powerful role preservation (or lack thereof) can play in a city’s evolution.
At GVSHP, Chelsea manages public outreach, programming, and communication with members.
