About this Event

Scott Hanson, author of the award-winning and best-selling book, Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners talks about how to approach restoring a historic house in a way that identifies and preserves its most important character-defining features while making it livable for 21st century life.

The illustrated presentation introduces the book–a fantastic holiday gift for that old house lover in your life!–and discusses how a thoughtful approach to restoration can preserve the historic character of a house while making it livable for contemporary lives. A live intro and wrap-up Q&A period bookend the recorded presentation.

The book, published by Tilbury House Publishing and distributed by W.W. Norton, is based on more than 40 years’ experience in the historic preservation field. This 720-page hardcover volume with more than 2,000 color photos and drawings was released in December 2019 and was an immediate hit across the country. It is available in bookstores (including Pejepscot History Center and Gulf of Maine Books) and other online retailers. Signed and personalized copies are available directly from the author at YourHistoricHouse.

Scott is Director of Preservation Consulting Services for Sutherland Conservation & Consulting in Hallowell. His other books include Homes Down East, Classic Maine Coastal Cottages and Town Houses and The Architecture of Cushing’s Island, both co-written with Maine State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth. He has also written on historic houses and restoration for Maine Homes and Down East magazines and The Boston Sunday Globe.
