Please join us for "FROM NETHERLANDIC TO DUTCH COLONIAL" -- The Story of an Evolving House Style in America
March 9 @ 6 PM
Architectural-style labels can be both confusing and misleading. What is the difference between a house now commonly labeled Dutch Colonial and a house built by the settlers of New Netherland during the Dutch Colonial period (1624-1664)? Join us for a lavishly illustrated conversation with architectural historian Jeroen van den Hurk and historical artist Len Tantillo to explore how 17th-century architecture from the Dutch Republic was adapted by immigrants in the New World. And how by the end of the 19th century, rediscovery of these Dutch roots led to a reappraisal of this architectural heritage and ultimately to the popular Dutch Colonial Revival style of architecture during the first half of the 20th century.
