Event Description: 

As part of Historic Waltham month, Stonehurst Curator Ann Clifford and Historic New England's Sally Zimmerman tell the story of how two celebrated architects created National Historic Landmarks in Waltham.

In the 1880s, Henry Hobson (H.H.) Richardson and Henry Hartwell modified country houses for the Paine and Lyman families on Beaver Street. In these contemporary summer homes of the wealthy, experimentation outside of the demanding conservative expectations of Victorian Boston was possible.

Richardson, one of America's most influential architects of all time, shocked his peers with bold and innovative designs for public libraries, civic buildings, railroad stations, and homes across the country. Waltham native Hartwell was an accomplished architect in his own right, constructing prominent buildings in his hometown and in nearby cities with his partner William Richardson. Their buildings were often influenced by their more famous colleague, H.H. (no relation to William).

Cosponsored by Historic New England, the City of Waltham and the Friends of Stonehurst.
