Discovering New England Stone Walls

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016 at 6:30 pm

KevinGardnerKevin Gardner will present on the history, technique, stylistic development, and aesthetics of New England’s iconic stone walls. He will explain how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. There will be a generous question-and-answer period, during which listeners are encouraged to bring up specific problems or projects on their own properties. Kevin Gardner has been a stone wall builder for more than forty years, is the author of The Granite Kiss, copies of which will be available for purchase. During the presentation, Kevin will occupy himself building a miniature stone wall in front of the audience.

An Evening with our First Ladies

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016 at 7:00 pm

FirstLadiesFormer history teacher Robert Jackson will give a presentation on our country’s First Ladies, and how their roles changed dramatically over the course of history. Our early First Ladies had little to distinguish themselves. By contrast, many later and contemporary First Ladies, before becoming the wives of presidents, had already achieved recognition in their own right. The cultural liberation of women affected the differences in character and in their current roles in the White House.
