House Hunter’s Workshop

| March 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

The City of Annapolis is an exciting and beautiful place to live and work. One of its biggest attractions to residents, tourists, and businesses is its interesting history of buildings representing more than three hundred years of American architecture. Join historian Jean Russo in an introduction to the techniques and sources for researching the history of your older or historic property.

Whether your property is located in the Colonial Annapolis Historic District or is a nineteenth- or early twentieth-century building in Eastport, West Annapolis, Murray Hill, or Parole, you will learn what records can be used to research properties in Anne Arundel County. Also, learn more about the benefits and responsibilities associated with historic designation from Lisa Craig, Chief of Historic Preservation with the City of Annapolis.

All participants will receive a copy of the Building History Manual, produced by the Historic Annapolis Foundation and Building in the Fourth Century: the Annapolis Historic District Design Manual published by the Annapolis Historic Preservation Commission.

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, March 26 from 10 am to noon in the City Council Chambers at Annapolis City Hall, 160 Duke of Gloucester St., Annapolis, MD. Parking is available on-street as well as at the adjacent Hillman Parking Garage.

Sponsored by the Annapolis Historic Preservation Commission and the Historic Annapolis Foundation, the event is free to the public, but reservations are requested. Please confirm your attendance by calling Shari Pippen at 410-263-7961 or email [email protected] with your name and number of attendees.
