Talas American College Buildings that are one of the base stations of American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions’ educational activities carried out in Turkey in the 19th century, have managed to make a significant imprint on the cultural and architectural underground of the city’s memory with the different functions that they have undertaken. Due to the intensive use of the building complex by Erciyes University since 1978, restoration was needed and a conservation project was prepared in accordance with contemporary conservation principles. With this study, that was supported by Erciyes University Scientific Research Project Department (no 4440), it is aimed to set a model to be followed during the preparation of conservation projects. In this context, the process and methods used during the preparation of the project have been summarized aiming to increase the quality of restoration practices in the region and to contribute to scientific literature
