The House That Hand Built

April 6, 2019
The House That Hand Built
Are you interested in learning how Edward Hand built Rock Ford, his gorgeous Georgian home, in 1792? Do you want to know how masonry, surveying, building and history inspire a day of fun? Then spend the day with us at Rock Ford on Saturday, April 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for The House That Hand Built. Wes Swanson, mason, teacher and historian, will share his knowledge of history, building and even give you an opportunity to “throw and strike” a brick! The program is geared toward middle and high schoolers who will also experience surveying, estimating and studying the Georgian style of architecture. Students will apply and practice their
mathematics and critical thinking skills to solve problems related to rise-and-run, porch-fall and occasional errors that 18th century builders could have made.
