The Sanford-Bristol House presentation will focus on many of the unique features of this historic homestead, including some interesting discoveries recently made during the initial phases of the home’s rehabilitation. Spectacular architectural images, captured by local photographer Kara Flannery, will be shown and described.

    Hey John,
    I’m glad that you’re still involved with this project. Saving is one thing, preparing a house for a great (and long) future is another. In this age having someone with building science knowledge and a preservationist instinct is really important. Plus, it seems to be keeping you from wreaking havoc on twitter these days :-)
    I’ve been spending a fair amount of time getting more deeply involved in local history as we in Concord, NH get ready to celebrate our 250th next year. Even though this community had been in existence for decades before 1765, and what we’re really celebrating is a name change!??! The winners DO write history.
    BTW. Reading the previous comments I’m trying to figure out how I’ve been such a bad influence on you from this distance. I guess I can’t take credit for every good Mae West reference…

    Thanks, Alexandra!

    Maybe people will ask me: “Is that a blunderbuss under your pirate sash? Or are you just happy to see me?!”
