Join Historic New England for An Introduction to New England Architecture
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Historic New England, architecture, Lyman Estate, Governor John Langdon House, preservation specialist
Contributed By: Historic New England
Website: http://www.historicnewengland.org/about/WhatsNew.asp

Historic New England presents An Introduction to New England Architecture: Technology and Tradition on Tuesday or Thursday evenings in October. Tuesday sessions are held at the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Massachusetts. Thursday sessions are held at the Governor John Langdon House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. All sessions begin at 6 p.m.

This five-week course tells the story of New England architecture from 1640 to 1940. Historic New England staff explore building traditions, available technology, and how lifestyles affected the houses of generations of New Englanders. Using high-style and vernacular examples from across the region, Senior Stewardship Manager Joseph Cornish and Preservation Specialist Sally Zimmerman trace changes in construction, style, and function in residential architecture in a series of lectures that culminates in a hands-on tour of a Historic New England property that will help you learn to read your old house.

Tuesdays at the Lyman Estate, Waltham, MA:

  • October 2 - First Period and Early Georgian
  • October 9 - Georgian and Federal
  • October 16 - Greek Revival to Early Victorian
  • October 23 - Late Victorian to Early Modern

  • October 11 - Georgian and Federal
  • October 18 - Greek Revival to Early Victorian
