Sunday, October 30th, 4:00pm

Henry Alexander Sykes (1810-1860) was an important mid-19th century New England architect, who designed among other buildings the iconic Greek Revival meeting house on the green in New Marlborough in 1837. His surviving work encompasses fine examples of both Greek and Gothic Revival buildings, as well as others influenced by the octagon movement and Italianate style. A professor emeritus at Rutgers University, David Hosford was a member of the history department on the Newark campus for almost forty years. Now retired and living in New Marlborough, MA, he recently completed a five-year stint as president of the New Marlborough Village Association.
