Event description
Witness historic preservation atop Westbury House! Join us for "scaffold tour" of the cornice and roof restoration at Old Westbury Gardens.

About this Event

The restoration of the terra cotta cornice and Collyweston slate roof at Westbury House reveals a fascinating story about early 20th century construction systems, building materials, and craftsmanship. With an introductory presentation and a visit to the project “staging area,” project managers Kurt Hirschberg of Jan Hird Pokorny Associates and Michael Stallmeyer of Preserv Building Restoration will lead “scaffold tours” to provide an up-close and personal look at the restoration process. Participants must wear sturdy shoes, sign an insurance waiver, and be able to climb a ladder. Limited to 20 people. Pre-registration is required. (Gardens parking and admission fees waived for tour ticket-holders).
