Presentation by Peter Barr, PhD Saturday, February 22, 2pm Lenawee Historical Museum 110 E. Church St, Adrian
Peter Barr, PhD, (Professor of Art History, Siena Heights University) will look at Adrian's J. H. Champion House (1856) at 523 South Winter Street. The talk will feature both historic and recent photographs of the home's exterior but will focus on local and national ideas associated with this home in the 1850s, including the shapes and styles of antebellum houses, marvelous new technologies, the projected end of slavery at the time, and the surprising link between octagon cottages and bumpy skulls.
There is no cost to attend the event, and all are welcome.
