It will take place on Saturday, October 8, and will feature a talk to which all are welcome, plus an optional, exclusive hands-on workshop.

The first part of the program is a lecture, in the museum's auditorium, where Van Ness will speak about the museum research library’s resources, the specific tools that are available, and give tips for how to research a property in which you are interested.

No pre-registration is required for this part of the program; admission is $5 members/$7 non-members, which covers general admission for lecture alone.
