Wistariahurst Museum, Talk

December 15, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

On Wednesday, December 15 at 6:30 PM, Wistariahurst will host Understanding the Architecture of Your Town, a free, online presentation led by Brianne Zulkiewicz. Registration is required at wistariahurst.org.Every city and town has a built environment that is unique to their own economic, political, cultural, and social circumstances. Holyoke’s housing stock, for instance, was greatly influenced by the presence of paper and textile factories.

Join Brianne Zulkiewicz for a virtual crash course into how to investigate your own town’s architectural history.

She will explain how to trace the historical trends that shaped our architectural history using databases, archives, records, and local resources. Plus, she’ll talk about some common architectural styles you might have in your own neighborhoods!

Brianne Zulkiewicz is the Education Manager at Amelia Park Children’s Museum where she designs literacy, art, and science programming. A former Wistariahurst staff member, Zulkiewicz keeps up with the latest in local history by serving as an associate board member for the Pioneer Valley History Network. She is currently pursuing a master’s in Public History at Central Connecticut State University.

This free program is open to all members of the public, but has been specially designed to address the needs of area seniors, many of whom continue to be socially isolated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is supported through a Community Development Block Grant – COVID-19 Grant to address, prevent, and respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic that is administered through the Holyoke Office of Community Development and has been planned in consultation with the Holyoke Council on Aging.
