Event Details

The Sellman/Kirkpatrick-Howat House, known to its occupants as Woodlawn, embodies almost three centuries of change. Over the generations, the needs and ideals of the families who lived there shifted in relation to their surroundings. Nowhere is this clearer than in the house’s three sections, each built more than 100 years apart. From its origins as a tobacco plantation house in the early 1700s, to its 1979 passive solar addition, the story of Woodlawn is a reflection of the story of the Chesapeake itself.

This talk is part of SERC's "Science and History on the Bay" winter evening lecture series. As the final history lecture, it will be given at two times on March 13 (11am-12pm and 7pm-8pm). Free and open to all!
