Ann Havemeyer: Ladies, Legends & Lakeside Dwellings – Alfredo Taylor in Norfolk
Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm
Those of us who live in Norfolk, CT assume that everyone has heard of Alfredo Taylor. One has only to drive through the center of town, dominated as it is by the tall brick building known as the Royal Arcanum with its steeply pitched slate roof enlivened with multiple gables and dormers, to make acquaintance with this highly original architect. Taylor came to Norfolk in the first years of the last century, and within a short period of time had put his distinctive mark on the landscape, designing stone and timber houses, lakeside camps, commercial buildings, schools, churches, and monuments. His work more than any other has come to define the look and style of this small Connecticut town, and it is now part of the National Register of Historic Places. Find out more about this Norfolk legend in an illustrated slide talk by Ann Havemeyer, author of An Architect of Place and the Village Beautiful: Alfredo Taylor in Norfolk, Connecticut (2012).
