An Intro to the Architecture of Montgomery County


Many people entering the doors of our Research Library & Archives are searching for information about their home. When was it built? What did it look like originally? Why does it look the way it does now? What can I do to preserve it? Who built it and who lived in it?

This workshop serves as an introduction to the various types of architecture found in Montgomery County and some of the resources and tools that will help anyone discover a little more about their home.

The virtual workshop will take place on Monday, April 4, 2022 at 7pm.  It will introduce attendees to the fundamental tools you’ll need to start seeing your house in a new light and examien some on-line resources for house history research.
