Woodwork in Historic Buildings of the Kingston Region - A Book Talk and Community Event

Woodwork in Historic Buildings of the Kingston Region - A Book Talk and Community Event

On Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 7 PM in St John’s Hall, 216 Church Street, Bath, architectural historian Jennifer McKendry will give an illustrated talk based on her new book, "Woodwork in Historic Buildings of the Kingston Region". The styles, construction and details of log and frame buildings will be analyzed from the late 18th to the late 19th century.  In addition, woodwork, such as mantels, staircases, verandahs and doors, will be illustrated in frame, brick and stone houses. Kingston is known as “the Limestone City,” but tribute must also be given to the work of the carpenter and joiner, whose work also strongly influenced buildings in Loyalist Township.
 
All welcome. Free event.
 
Dr McKendry is an architectural historian, a photographer and an author of such books as "With Our Past before Us: 19th-Century Architecture in the Kingston Area, Modern Architecture in the Kingston Area and Bricks in 19th-Century Architecture in the Kingston Area". Her latest book will be available for purchase at this event (also for sale at Novel Idea bookstore, Kingston).
