NELDHA's Annual Reception was a Great Success

Beautiful weather set the stage for NELDHA's Annual Reception at the historic MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Massachusetts on April 25, 2014. Members and Friends enjoyed  the beautiful grounds and mansion while reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends.

Our speaker was Director of Cultural Resources for The Trustees of Reservations, Lucinda Brockway. Cindy's talk was Where Do You Fit In?  Landscape Preservation and Design in a Changing World. She spoke about such wide ranging sites Native American mines and burial grounds to the highly designed landscapes of the Golden Age and the challenges facing present day managers.

We wish to thank you to Heidi Kost Gross, Maureen O'Brien and Janis Porter, the Committee who organized the event. Also a special thanks to Heidi Kost Gross, Janis Porter and Lynette Tsiang for their generous donations.

 
NELDHA Announces Fall Events - Save These Dates

NELDHA is pleased to announce that it is co-sponsoring a Preservation Seminar with The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR) at Castle Hill in Ipswich, Massachusetts on November 14, 2014. The focus of the event is the restoration of the 100 year old casino. We had an excellent response to last year's sold out Workshop at Naumkeag and expect this event will be equally popular.

Also on November 14, 2014, NELDHA will host a Booth at the Cape Cod Landscape Association's Annual Trade Show in Hyannis Massachusetts. Stop by and say Hi to Members Julie Esteves and Stuart Ruggles!

On  November 19, 2014, NELDHA's Fall Reception features well known writer and lecturer Anthony Sammarco speaking on Forest Hills Cemetary. This event replaces the Fall Tea. A beer and wine reception will preceed the lecture. The traditional tea and coffee service will be available as well. 

More information will follow shortly.
