McAllister House Architecture: A Moral Influence in a Country Home
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us for a presentation about the history of the McAllister House architecture.
The McAllisters built their dream home on North Cascade using a design originally created by the famous landscape architect Andrew Jackson Downing in the mid-nineteenth Century. Downing viewed the family home as the center of American moral education and the focus of a middle-class search for the meaning of life.
McAllister House Museum Director, Eric Metzger, will give a talk on Downing’s influence on our nation, the Downing design, and why the McAllisters chose it for their own.
