Discovering New England Stone Walls with Kevin Gardner ~ (NH Humanities) Registration requested @ 6:30 PM, Thursday 10/18/18
Why are we so fascinated with stone walls? Find out as we welcome back Kevin Gardner, author of The Granite Kiss.
Join us as Kevin Gardner explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time and their significance to the famous New England landscape. Along the way, Kevin occupies himself building a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop, using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket.
