Cleveland Park Historical Society Preservation Café

Cleveland Park Historical Society Preservation Café

7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28 at Ardeo

$35 (member), $45 (non-member)

The Preservation Cafe series offers the Cleveland Park community an opportunity to learn from experts in a variety of fields relating to historic preservation. The Cafe includes an opportunity to ask our speaker questions and will be followed by dinner.

This month's Preservation Cafe will feature a PowerPoint presentation on Washington area Residential Historic Architecture with architect Bruce Wentworth and will be held at Ardeo, where they've offered us an impressive three-course meal for $35 (members) and $45 (non-members) which includes tax and gratuities (beverages are additional).

Mr. Wentworth is the founder of Wentworth, Inc., a residential design-build firm and has worked in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area for over twenty years. Passionate about historic architecture, Mr. Wentworth has recently put his survey of residential architectural styles in the DC metro area online allowing a wider community to research and identify their own home's period and style.

Following his presentation, Mr. Wentworth will answer your questions about historic styles and characteristics.
