In preparation for the first Hammond Mid-Century Modern Home Tour (slated for April 21st, 2018), the Hammond Historic District Commission presents the second of a two-part lecture series about the architectural history of the United States and Hammond.
Date: Wednesday April 11, 2018
Time: 5:30 pm
Tickets: Free and open to the public!
This second lecture by Howard C. Nichols - Regional Historian and Professor Emeritus at Southeastern Louisiana University - will explain the character defining details of the Mid-Century Modern architectural style as well as its proliferation in Hammond due in large part to local architect John Desmond.
Come to the First Christian Church (architect: John Desmond), which was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a fine example of Mid-Century Modern architecture, and learn more about our local architectural history!
There will be time after the presentation for questions.
