The Restoration Plasterer
The Barre Historical Society hosts a program by professional and restoration plasterer Jan Gordon of Spencer, Mass. Mr. Gordon recently completed a project at our Greek Revival Society building involving the restoration of our 1831 double parlors. His accounts of restoration projects in venerable Boston brownstones and university buildings offer a new look at an ancient craft. Mr. Gordon will describe and demonstrate the painstaking work which went into the plaster decoration of many of our older buildings.
