Author Talk with Lee McColgan: A House Restored

July 17, 7pm9pm.
$15; $10 members

Bayside Historical Society welcomes architectural conservator and author Lee McColgan for a fascinating lecture about his new book, A House Restored. Lee gave up his 9-5 job to dedicate himself to the daunting task of restoring the 1702 Loring House in Pembroke, MA. Deteriorating bricks, frozen pipes, shattered windows, a punctured foundation, and an airborne chimney cap were only some of the challenges he faced. Learn about the trials, tribulations, and triumphs that Lee experienced while saving this 18th-century New England Colonial. Autographed copies of A House Restored will be on sale following the presentation.

This event is part of Bayside Historical Society’s “Author Talk at The Castle Series.”
