Architecture in the Wild: Exploring Maplewood’s Seneca Parkway (YUP Brainery Class)
October 3 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Love old buildings but don’t know a Queen Anne from a Dutch Colonial? In this class, the Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs) take students out to explore Rochester’s architectural history in its natural setting. During this two-hour walking tour, walk the streets of the Maplewood neighborhood, examining the magnificent architecture of the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Seneca Parkway. As you traverse one of Rochester’s most impressive streets, learn the names of important architectural styles, basic architectural terminology, and how to approximately date the buildings we see every day.
Instructors are members of the Young Urban Preservationists, an affiliate group of The Landmark Society of Western New York. The YUPs are an emerging generation of preservationists in the greater Rochester region dedicated to promoting inclusive, modern, and innovative preservation practices to help revitalize communities and our built environment. And we have fun doing it!
