There's still plenty of time to register for tomorrow's Brown Bag Lunch lecture. Don't miss out! We've been having some pretty big crowds lately, and we want to make sure we have enough room for everyone.
Also please note that the program will be a full hour beginning at noon. Arrive early if you can.
Historic preservation, whether of landscapes or buildings, was an important development of the nineteenth century in many countries. There is, however, surprisingly little understanding about how it took place, and research into it is narrowly focused. Melanie Hall edited Towards World Heritage: International Origins of Preservation a collection of essays that provides a more holistic view of this movement than ever before.
Join Professor Hall for a look at an example of that movement in our collections, an 1896 tour to from Boston to Britain sponsored by The Congregationalist. This tour was also the inspiration for our local historians' recent trip to Congregational sites in England.
