Title
Workshop: How to Research Your House
Description
Think your home has a story to tell? Always wonder about that intriguing house, church, or other building on the corner? If you’ve ever wondered how to get started learning more about the history of any building – this workshop is for you! The Clarke County Historical Association is proud to introduce the first of a new series of research workshops aimed at helping amateur and expert researchers delve into the rich historical record of our area. To begin the series, Maral Kalbian, architectural historian and author of several books including Images of America – Clarke County and Frederick County, Virginia: History Through Architecture will provide an in-depth introduction at how to uncover the history of houses and other structures in the area. A well known historic-preservationist, and a professional historic preservation consultant for more than twenty years, Kalbian has extensive expertise in teasing the true age and history out of complex structures. This is a rare opportunity to learn from an expert in the field. The workshop will be held Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Barns of the Rose Hill, in Berryville, VA. The Clarke County Historical Association archives (at 32 E. Main Street, Berryville, VA) will be open following the program for those who want to get started on their research. The program is free for Clarke County Historical Association Members, and $5 for non-members. Reservations are encouraged. Those who would like to attend should call 540-955-2600 for reservations or more information.
