November 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
William L. Price was one of an influential group of architects working during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Philadelphia. Aside from his importance in the area of design based on Arts and Crafts Movement ideals, Price was one of the founders of an arts and crafts community, Rose Valley, outside of Philadelphia.
In the decade that began with the design of Woodmont and ended with Yorklynne, William Price transitioned from a designer of suburban developer homes, notably in Wayne and Germantown, to an architect of mansions. The program will focus on the large houses of the decade, including two major works in Easttown.
James Garrison, is an architect with over 35 years of experience in historic preservation; his work has included research and restoration work on many National Historic Landmark structures including the National Gallery of Art and several state capitols. He is the author of several books including “Mastering Tradition, The Residential Architecture of John Russell Pope.”
