Join City Archaeologist Joe Bagley as he reveals the oldest surviving buildings in Boston in Boston’s Oldest Buildings and Where to Find Them, the first book to do so. This book and presentation will appeal to nonarchitects and those new to historic preservation. The buildings span multiple uses from homes to churches and warehouses to restaurants. Hear new research and see Joe’s digital re-creations of some of your old favorites—and perhaps find about a few new discoveries hiding in plain sight. This presentation will celebrate the efforts and the stories of how these buildings have survived to the present.
