Talk on Early N.Y. Architecture
On Wednesday, August 20, at 7 p.m., the Cambridge Historical Society and Museum will hold its third in a series of summer programs with Bill Krattinger as speaker. The topic will be the early architecture of Washington County and how it was shaped by the area’s diverse cultural perspectives, established building traditions and methods of construction, the architectural tastes of the day, developments in regional agriculture and the surrounding natural environment. Houses, religious edifices and agricultural structures will be among the building types considered within these various contexts. A special emphasis will be placed on buildings in the greater Cambridge area, in addition to other nearby locales in southern Washington County. Krattinger works for the New York Division for Historic Preservation and has a special interest in the architecture and landscape of Washington County. His primary responsibility with the DHP
is evaluating properties for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. He is a resident of Washington County.
The Museum is located at 12 Broad Street in Cambridge, N.Y. It will open at 6 p.m. for tours. Refreshments will be served following the program. This event is free and open to the public.
