Revealing Historic Home Secrets
Featuring Seth Hinshaw

Thursday, April 29, 7pm via Zoom

What historic home secrets are hidden in a nail head, a doorknob, a hinge, a floorboard? Any of these could yield a world of information. Want to learn how? Then join us for the Kennett Township Historic Commission Annual Program on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 7:00 PM. The program features noted architectural historian, Seth Hinshaw. Some of you may remember a few years ago, when Seth presented BARNS to a standing room only crowd. He is returning with a wonderful new virtual presentation explaining how he dates structures by finding architectural elements. Sometimes they are hidden in plain sight.

We are looking forward with sharing this program with you!
