History Bites: A History of the American House with John Milnes Baker
April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
John Milnes Baker, AIA, architect and author, will be presenting a two hour PART I of “A History of the American House” on April 2, 2019. The program covers the Early Colonial and Georgian Colonial periods through 1783, the official end of the Revolutionary War. The second hour of this program explores the development of Federal, Neoclassical and Greek Revival styles and ends with Washington Irving’s Sunnyside in 1835. Sunnyside was a turning point from the ancient classical world to the romantic era of The Picturesque. PART II will follow later in the spring with the “Victorian” styles, Palatial Palaces, Reminiscent styles and the rise of the Modern Movement.
