As Boston approaches its four-hundredth anniversary, it is remarkable that the city still contains dozens of 18th century buildings. This book talk celebrates Bagley's second book, the first to survey Boston’s fifty oldest buildings, and does so through an approachable narrative which will appeal to nonarchitects and those new to historic preservation. This particular talk focuses on the stories from the six buildings in Boston's historic North End that made the list. Building highlights include the Grant House and Kimball-Parker House--- two mid-18th century buildings you may have walked by and never knew were some of the oldest buildings in the City. The stories shared in this talk cover a wide range of topics from enslaved Bostonians, powerful women, Revolutionary War heroes, and the great efforts that have gone into preserving these places for centuries.
