$39

with Dan Mitchell

Calendar Sep 20, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks
Learn about 250 years of Maine architecture, and maybe learn something about YOUR house! Also, learn how to be an advocate for historic preservation. The framework of this class will be five weeks of presentations covering five major architectural periods (18th Century, Federal, Greek Revival, Victorian, Modern), but students are greatly encouraged to enhance the class with experiences from their own homes. Student photos can be integrated into the slide presentations, and students are encouraged to share their own old house stories or problems. There will be slides of MANY local, central Maine examples (over 500), numerous hands-on artifacts, suggested books, as well as general discussions of methods of construction, technology changes, style changes, and the ideas behind them. Also, we’ll cover topics of restoration and historic preservation, as well as how to solve common old house problems. Class fees will be donated to a needy local historical organization, so you will contribute to historic preservation in the Kennebec Valley just by taking this course. Limit 25 students.
