SOLD OUT! Architecture in the Wild: Exploring Corn Hill’s Architectural History (YUP Brainery Class)
June 23 @ 6:15 PM - 8:15 PM
Love old buildings but don’t know a Queen Anne from a Dutch Colonial? The Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs for short) are taking you out onto the streets to explore Rochester’s architectural history in its natural setting! In this 2-hour outdoor class, we’ll walk the streets of Rochester’s oldest residential neighborhood, Corn Hill, tracing the evolution of the neighborhood from Rochester’s earliest days up to the population boom of the early 20th century. We’ll learn the names of important architectural styles, some basic architectural terminology, and how to approximately date the buildings you see every day.
