Exploring Some of Saugerties' Architectural Treasures

William B. Rhoads, a well-known architectural historian, will give a slide talk discussing several prominent architectural treasures of the Town and Village of Saugerties ranging from 18th-century stone houses to Colonial Revival buildings of the 1930s. Those attending the talk will then be invited to join a walking tour(rain or shine) in the vicinity of the library where lesser-known 19th and early 20th-century houses in a variety of styles will be discussed from their sidewalks. Joining the discussion will be local historian and preservationist Michael Sullivan Smith with information about the owners and early occupants of the houses.
