Join Us for Discovering New England Stone Walls on April 30th


Kevin Gardner
Have you ever come across a stone wall in the middle of nowhere and wondered why it was there?  Have you ever tried to build one of your own only to discover it's more difficult than you thought?  If you answered "yes" to one of these questions, or just have an interest in historic stone walls, join us for:

Discovering New England Stone Walls
April 30, 2013 at 7:00p.m.
Campbell High School Library

Kevin Gardner, author of The Granite Kiss: Traditionsand Techniques of Building New England Stone Walls, delivers an informal talk touching on the history, technique, stylistic development, and aesthetics of the stone wall.  

He explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone wall, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. 

Restoration tips and techniques, the differences between historical and contemporary wall-builders, along with a generous Q and A, round out the evening.  

Copies of The Granite Kiss will be available for sale.

This free event is open to the public, and is co-sponsored by the Litchfield Historical Society.
