The Program in new England Studies
Historic New England presents the Program in New England Studies, an intensive learning experience with lectures by curators and architectural historians, workshops, and behind-the-scenes tours of Historic New Englandís house museums and collections, and other museums and private homes in the region. The program is held from Monday, June 21 to Saturday, June 26.
In recognition of Historic New Englandís centennial, the 2010 Program in New England Studies offers two special sessions focusing on the preservation philosophy of its founder, William Sumner Appleton, who defined procedures that are still followed today. Architecture experts Cary Carson and Abbott Lowell Cummings lead a special tour of the c. 1670 Swett-Ilsley House in Newbury, Massachusetts, the first property acquired by Historic New England. Wendy Price Historic New Englandís team leader for historic preservation presents Preserving New England: the Life and Legacy of William Sumner Appleton.
