A Quick Heads-up About Tonight's Weber County Heritage Foundation Special Event

A lecture and slide show of local Colonial Revival and Neoclassical Revival Architecture

At the request of one of our regular WCF readers, we'll provide a quick heads-up about tonight's Weber County Heritage Foundation special event:

Historic Lecture Series, April 27, 7 p.m. @ Weber County Library, Main Branch, Auditorium

Modest & Grand: Weber County's Colonial Revival

and Neoclassical Revival Architecture

Want to know more about Weber County's historic buildings? Architectural historian Richa Wilson will discuss the popular Colonial Revival and Neoclassical Revival styles of the early 1900s. You will learn about their origins, development, and characteristics. By the end of the slide show, you will be able to identify these buildings in your neighborhood! This lecture is free to the public, and is the first in a series sponsored by WCHF.

Richa is a wonderful public speaker whose “day-job” is as the Regional Architectural Historian for the U.S. Forest Service. She has a great slide-show ready to accompany the lecture packed with local examples. The lecture is free.

The Foundation also has some of Richa's photos posted at their website, just to put you in the mood:

We hope that you'll all mark your calenders and plan to attend.
