Out and About:  Beauty & the Beast, 300 Years of Connecticut Architecture

September 24       7 PM – 8:30 PM

 

Bill Hosley, preservationist and scholar will present a survey of 300-plus years of Connecticut architecture at Windsor Historical Society.  During the seventeenth and early eighteenth century while everything was locally built and designed almost entirely from local materials, the variety of architectural forms and styles wasn’t tremendous. Over time the spectrum of variety kept widening until the arrival of sprawl, strip malls and homogenous buildings.  Share in his discoveries, gleaned from many years photographing Connecticut’s architectural features adjoining Connecticut’s highways and byways. The purpose of this program is to share the wealth of discovery and, hopefully, inspire a desire to protect and preserve the best of what we have produced. COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members.  For more information, contact the Society at 860/688-3813.
