Learn background, care of your historic home

Historic Huguenot Street is offering a series of lectures designed for owners of early 20th century to colonial-era homes, starting Saturday, June 20. This sounds like a great activity for homeowners who are curious about how to stay true to the origins of their houses.

The four workshops are:
Intro to Preservation, Saturday, June 20
Researching Your Home's "Genealogy" with Archives Specialist Susan Stessin-Cohn, Saturday, July 18
Period Roofs and Windows, Saturday, August 15
Historic Hardware with blacksmith Jonathan Nedbor, Saturday, September 19

Workshops take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Restoration Workshop at Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz, with the exception of July 18, which will be held in the site's library.  Cost is $80 for the series or $25 per workshop.  Advance registration is strongly recommended.  To get more information or to register, click on the "Historic Homeowners Series" link at or call 845-255-1660, ext. 300.
