Judith Nast Writes In-
The Sargent House Museum would like to invite people to a lecture followed by refreshments and a tour of the museum tour this coming Saturday at 2pm at the Sawyer Library. We’re delighted to have the wonderful author, Tim Orwig, talk about Joseph Chandler’s work in preserving the musuem in the early part of the 20th century. Joseph Everett Chandler, preservationist and antiquarian, was a champion of Colonial Restoration, most often referred to as the Colonial Revival style. He believed architectural forms demonstrated values of their builders, and that a culture could not survive without preserving reminders of its origins and character. After the lecture, we’ will walki over to the museum for refreshments and a tour. You may have noticed that the Sargent House Museum is in the midst of an exterior restoration project. Come see what it’s all about! Get tickets online at sargenthouse.org.
Thanks for your support and helping us get the word out!
