The Albany County Historical Association is set to kick off its 2019 programming series, “Speaking Easy: Prohibition in Albany,” with an illustrated presentation focusing on the built environment of Prohibition-era Albany on Monday, January 7, 2019 at 7 pm at the Ten Broeck Mansion.
Walter R. Wheeler, Senior Architectural Historian at Hartgen Archeological Associates and member of the ACHA board since 2004, will lead the program. Mr. Wheeler will focus on buildings built in the City of Albany and its suburbs during a time when the Colonial Revival, Spanish Revival, and later, the Art Deco style, were most popular.
There is a $5 suggested donation; free for ACHA members. Reservations encouraged – limited seating at the door. Light refreshments will be served.
The Ten Broeck Mansion is located at 9 Ten Broeck Place, Albany. For more information on the Albany County Historical Association, click here.
