Event description

Description

The beautiful Hammond-Harwood House in Annapolis is a masterpiece of skilled craftsmanship and elegant Palladian design. But up until the early twentieth century, the name of its architect had been lost to time. It was only after 1924 that scholars realized that the house could be credited to William Buckland, a man whose name had faded into obscurity. Now, thanks to detailed scholarship, Hammond-Harwood House Curator and Assistant Director Rachel Lovett will discuss Buckland's brief but eventful life, from his birth in Oxford, England, in 1734, to his indenture at George Mason’s Gunston’s Hall, to his time as the architect of choice for the elite of Virginia and Annapolis.

5 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
6 p.m. Lecture in Mergenthaler Hall, Room 111
