Boston Society of Architects’ January Meeting

The speaker at January’s monthly meeting of the Boston Society of Architects’ Historic Resources Committee was Jay Wickersham, FAIA of the law firm Noble & Wickersham LLP.  He spoke about little known aspects of the histories of architects Charles Bulfinch and H.H. Richardson.  The  experience of these prominent Boston architects helped to form the structure of architectural practice in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Mr. Wickersham explained how these fascinating figures are tied to the present by speaking about the checkered history of the Ames family of North Easton, MA and the modern day successful campaign to preserve the Ames Shovel Works from demolition.  The meeting was attended by Kelly Streeter. More on the fascinating story here.
