Thank you from the Alford Historic District

The Alford Historic District Commission wishes to thank residents who attended the Inside/Out event on Saturday, 19th September, making it such a memorable afternoon. Our goal was to raise awareness of the uniqueness of the Town Center, and the importance of maintaining these beautiful historic buildings. We were thrilled with the turnout (over 100 attendees), with the perfect weather and with the interest generated by the afternoon’s activities.

There was standing-room-only for the history presentation by Sue Kormanik, and an eager crowd following architect Michael Lynch as he outlined the history of 18 th &19th century American architecture and placed the Alford Historic District’s three buildings within that context. All this accompanied by the gentle background music of the period provided by Aldo Lavaggi of The Berkshire Strings.

A video interview of long-time residents Bill Milligan and Laura Tucker was a highlight of the event. Bill and Laura were both in attendance, as were three others who had attended the school in the 30’s and 50’s. Historic ledgers were on display, and the second floor of the Town Hall was opened to small groups. You can download the Alford Historic District Event 09-19-2015 PDF to see images and more information about the day’s activities.

Our sincere thanks to all the volunteers who so graciously helped out on Saturday, and to community businesses that donated their skills and services, contributing to such a successful day!
