John Stevens, author of Dutch Vernacular Architecture
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Dutch Vernacular Architecture
Contributed By: Bonnie Sovinee
Website: http://ww.themeadowsfoundation.org

John Stevens, author of Dutch Vernacular Architecture in North America, 1640-1830, discusses the `Architecture of the Van Wickle House on Saturday, April 12th, at 2PM. This talk will take place at the Van Wickle House, 1289 Easton Avenue in Somerset section of Franklin Township in Somerset County, New Jersey. For reservations, contact Evelyn Maron at 732-560-1977

Dutch Vernacular Architecture in North America, 1640-1830, by John R. Stevens is a comprehensive record of buildings constructed by the Dutch in America. Most of the buildings discussed were measured, drawn and photographed by the author. The drawings make it possible to visualize regional variations in type and style, as well as the chronological development of Dutch-American buildings. A number of these structures - some of great architectural importance - have subsequently been demolished: others have been altered in such a way as to destroy important aspects of their original character.

While excellent books have been produced about the architectural heritage of the British in New England and the American South, the Germans in Pennsylvania and the French in Quebec, little has been done with regard to the Dutch. The most important contribution so far has been Dr. John Fitchen's excellent work, The New World Dutch Barn.

This book had its origin in research carried out by the author in connection with restoration of the c. 1730 Minnie Schenck house at Old Bethpage Village Restoration, a project of the Nassau County Museum on Long Island. In order to accurately restore and interpret missing features of this building of Dutch heritage, it was necessary to understand what constituted Dutch-American Building technology.

Tickets to each Fireside Chats are $10 per person, and should be reserved in advance.
