19th Century Homes in the Lower Hudson Valley

In the 1800s, the lower Hudson River Valley was in transition from a locally-based rural lifestyle to a suburban, middle class existence connected to wider networks. On Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Eugene Boesch demonstrates how these transformations set the stage for 20th contemporary culture. This lecture shows how the techniques of archaeology can be used to explore 19th century homes of the Hudson Valley and covers the process by which historic house sites are evaluated for possible inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. NY Council for the Humanities Speakers program. Pre-register online at http://www.taplib.org or call Jill at[masked] for more information.

    It may have been my editing of the title as well to shorten it. The full title is "From Founders to Farmers: An Archaeologist's View of 19th Century Homes in the Lower Hudson Valley" Description pulled from NY Council site.

    Thank you all so much for your feedback. It is very important to me. The description of the program was adapted directly from the presenter's lecture description on the NY Council for the Humanities web site. If the lecture did not cover all the material as outlined in the presenter's description, I will address this in my feedback form to the Council. Feedback I received was that he did not cover the process by which homes are evaluated for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, which was a key reason I booked the program. Feedback was generally that the program was interesting and well-received, but not as expected per the description.

    Very interesting content although much different that what I thought it would be based on the title. I thought it would focus on various historic structures and building styles using pictures of existing historic homes rather than on the archeological aspects is covered. Even though the content was not as expected, it was very interesting.
