Central Maine's Architectural History W17


with Dan Mitchell

Mar 2, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 5 weeks

Learn about 250 years of Maine architecture, and maybe learn something about YOUR house! 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 examples (over 500), as well as general discussions of methods of construction, technology changes, style changes, and the ideas behind them. Also, we will cover topics of restoration and preservation, as well as how to solve common old house problems. Class fees will be donated to a needy local historical society, so you will contribute to preservation in the Kennebec Valley just by taking the course. Limit 25 students.
