Events for Saturday March 23, 2013


Every Building Has a Story

Every Building Has a Story


Saturday March 23, 2013
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Join local history librarian Carolyn Dorsey, and architectural historian Janet W. Foster, for a workshop on how to research a building in Morris County and learn its story.

The richness of our community derives in part from the beauty of the structures that shape it – the detail of a cornice, the weather-worn pattern of old siding, the surprise of an intricate pattern on something as humble as a downspout. The story of the buildings - who built them, and when – enriches our understanding of the built environment.

 
Greenmap MorristownThe workshop will provide a quick overview of the maps, newspapers, and books in the North Jersey History & Genealogy Center (a department within the Morristown & Morris Township Library) that can help the curious researcher get started. A review of the public records available through Morris County will add more information on research possibilities. The workshop will also include a short lecture on the role of pattern books in setting styles in American architecture and providing the researcher with clues as to age and design intent for many houses. The workshop will go through the basic steps to get started in local building research.
 
You are invited to bring a photograph of a building, and other materials you may have related to local history buildingHouse research, for a question-and-answer session following the talks. The presentation will take place in the meeting room in the lower level of the library.
 
Participants should register in advance by calling (973) 538-3473, or by emailing carolyn.dorsey@mainlib.org
 
This program is supported through funding from the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
