Historian Peter Michaud will examine the architectural impact of French Canadian immigration over three generations. Beginning with Thomas Plant, whose father immigrated from Quebec to Maine in the 1830s, and the creation of his shoe factory and his estate Lucknow, to the work of local architect Lucien Omer Geoffrion who worked in the greater Portsmouth area from the 1930s to 1970, Michaud will discuss the buildings and landscapes created by French Canadian immigrants and their reflection of popular social trends.
Saturdays and Sundays - 1:00 - 4:00 pm - June-October
