Kelley Stroup
Thursday, November 10
6:00 — 7:30 p.m.

Landmarks Preservation Resource Center

This workshop is a collaborative exploration of tips, techniques, and sources for researching your own house history. Whether you’ve begun and are overwhelmed or stuck, or you’re just getting started with your own research and are unsure how to proceed, join us for a small group discussion of first steps, next steps, and missteps. Learn how to read a building for development clues, brainstorm ways to circumvent dead ends, and share your own research experiences. Come willing to participate!
