Fireside Chat with Syd Dumaresq: More Stories of Lunenburg County Architecture
Fourth-generation architect, Syd Dumaresq, is a passionate and knowledgeable advocate for the architecture of Lunenburg County, home of some of the oldest houses in English Canada. Two years ago, Syd entertained a packed house at the 170 year-old Broad Cove Hall with a lively illustrated story-telling session about the beautiful historic houses that dot our countryside. People were hungry for a follow-up talk to hear more, but Covid got in the way. We are pleased to announce that Syd will finally return to the Broad Cove Hall (7147 Hwy 331) on October 7 (7 – 8:30) for a Fireside Chat with “More Stories of Lunenburg County Architecture.”
Tickets are $10 each or by donation. Based on the pandemic restrictions, a limited number of tickets will be sold. To reserve your spot, please call 902 677 – 2794 Advance payment can be made by e-transfer. Proceeds from the evening will go towards accessibility renovations at the hall.
