The Greenwich Historical Society’s Landmark Recognition reception, which honors distinctive properties that reflect Greenwich’s unique architectural heritage, will plaque four properties at its May 7th celebration. The Perrot Memorial Library, The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, and beautifully preserved properties on Riversville and Stanwich roads will be presented with official Greenwich Landmark plaques for their value in preserving the town’s remarkable architectural legacy.
David Scott Parker Architects, one of America’s foremost preservation architects, and the visionary behind the Greenwich Historical Society’s plans for a dynamic, reimagined campus, will be the keynote speaker. In his talk titled: "Escaping the City in Style: The Architecture of 19th-Century Connecticut Innovators," Parker will share his experiences in reimagining the places inhabited and frequented by enormously accomplished individuals, such as railroad tycoon LeGrand Lockwood, Mark Twain, and artists of the Cos Cob art colony, and explore how these monuments to the past impact the Connecticut of today.
In recognition of the Landmark program’s 30th anniversary, the Historical Society will honor two Greenwich organizations for their leadership in advancing the cause of historic preservation. Greenwich Land Trust will be recognized for the restoration and adaptive reuse of the Louise Mueller Preserve and Greenwich Point Conservancy for the completion of the restoration of the Gateway and Old Barn.
The event is generously supported by David Ogilvy & Assoc, Charles Hilton Architects and media sponsor, Fairfield County Look.
