Join us July 18-19 in beautiful Salem, MA at the Hawthorne Hotel where skilled craftsmen and industry experts will present engrossing lectures on this year's conference theme, Materials and Methods.

After the Revolutionary War, Salem's unique geography and enterprising citizens established the city as one of the most prosperous sea ports in the Americas. Salem’s pepper and cod fish trades created the wealth to build grand classical buildings. For admirers of traditional architecture, The Salem Athenaeum, Hamilton Hall, The House of Seven Gables and many other significant colonial landmarks constitute our living laboratory. The Traditional Building Conference in Salem features expert-led architecture walking tours which will augment our seminars. Attendees learn best practices for historic restoration and renovation in the field and in the classroom.
