Lecture

$5

May 14, 6:30PM-7:30PM; (Seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended.)

Photographs provide evidence that can support or contradict our accounts of history. Often they are the only window into the past and lead to exciting new revelations. Inspired by images and maps stored in the archives of the Burgwin-Wright House, historian Christine Lamberton will take guests on a pictorial journey of the restoration and continued preservation of the house and property. Saved from the wrecking ball in 1937 by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of North Carolina, the Burgwin-Wright House was restored in four phases over a period of several decades. Ms. Lambertonís presentation will include more than 100 images, many of which have never before been shared with the public.
