Event description

Description

Walking & Bus Tour (lunch included)
Maureen Meister, Independent Scholar, Tour Leader

AIA CES: 7 LU

The village of North Easton, Massachusetts, has the greatest number of buildings designed by Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886) anywhere, including four that are renowned: the Ames Free Library, the Oakes Ames Memorial Hall, the Old Colony Railroad Station, and the Ames Gate Lodge. We will look at these masterpieces in their geographical and historical context, exploring the village where the Ames Shovel Company generated the revenue that enabled the Ames family patronage. The tour also will visit the Rockery, designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and the Post Office-Savings Bank designed by Shepley, Rutan, and Coolidge, Richardson's successor firm.

This tour is open to the public and is part of the 72nd Annual International Conference of the Society of Architectural Historians.
