“We are so fortunate the Boston area has one of the richest and largest collections of historic residential architecture in the country,” states Hanna. “There are many challenges associated with bringing these gems back to their original glory, but the outcome is worth it.

They will share their knowledge and answer questions; guests are encouraged to bring photos and enjoy a lively exchange of ideas.”
