A Field Course in Old Houses

$74

with Les Fossel

Calendar Oct 4, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

This is a course for people who have an old house, want to have an old house, or just love old houses! The first session is in the classroom. After that, meetings will be held in the old homes of class members. There will be as many sessions as are required to visit the houses of class members who want their houses visited (by no more than 12 people).

The last class will be a potluck supper at the instructor’s house, where class members can visit the historic features of Alna (the 1789 Meetinghouse, 1838 Head Tide Church, Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum, etc), see the instructor’s cabinetmaking shop and barns, and delve into his reference library on early buildings (one of the very best in Maine).

NOTE: Following the first class, the day and time of future classes will be determined by class members in a way to accommodate as many individual schedules as possible.

Les Fossel is one of Maine’s foremost experts on early buildings. His award-winning business has specialized in preserving our early buildings for 36 years. He has lectured throughout Maine and the Northeast, including as a faculty member for the University of Southern Maine.
