The Atkinson Historical Society is sponsoring John Cole, aka the 'Old House Whisperer' Mr. Cole will give an illustrated presentation of some of the older homes in Atkinson.
Atkinson is celebrating its 250th anniversary this year and Mr. Cole will review some of our historic homes and their varied architecture. John is an authority in the field of historic American houses and enjoys sharing this passion with audiences of all ages. John was Property Manager for Historic New England and worked for Abbott Cummings, foremost American architectural historian. Mr. Cole taught Historical Preservation at the Harvard School of Design and at the University of Arkansas, Graduate School of Architecture. He maintains a website at oldhousewhisperer.com
Needless to say, the presentation Mr. Cole will put together regarding Atkinson houses should prove to be very interesting and educational. John is dedicated to preserving the past and understanding how our past has led to the present in the town of Atkinson.
