Free workshop features local architectural historian

April 4, 2017 -

Local historian Jennifer McKendry will host a free workshop on bricks in 19th-century architecture of the Kingston area on Thursday, April 20 at 10 a.m. in Memorial Hall at City Hall, 216 Ontario St.

"Kingston has a reputation as ‘The Limestone City' but how realistic was that in the 19th century?" says McKendry.

The workshop, "Let us make bricks... and let us build ourselves a city," shares the same title as McKendry's newest book, which explores the origin and evolution of Kingston's buildings made of hand-made or pressed bricks.

This is the third workshop in the City's Heritage Resource Centre speaker series.

Registration is free and open to the public. Reserve your spot now at CityofKingston.ca/HRC.
