Seneca Falls: Demystifying Main St. Architecture

What makes up Main Street, USA and where did the idea come from? The United States experienced an unprecedented building boom between 1870 and 1915. As people moved out of the hot and noisy cities, seeking a more peaceful existence in the countryside, construction for new housing and shops was needed for a burgeoning population.On Thursday, November 20th, Women’s Rights National Historical Park and Hobart and William Smith Colleges will co-host Kirin J. Makkir, Assistant Professor of Architecture who will offer a lecture titled, “Demystifying the Bricks and Mortar of Main Street; An Early Story of Prefabrication.” The program will be offered from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm in the park visitor center at 136 Fall Street, Seneca Falls, NY.- See more at newyorkhistoryblog.org
