5/12: Meet your House--and its history

On Tuesday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m., Cynthia Cunningham Cort will give a lecture at Bryn Du Mansion: "Meet Your House--And Its History."  In this lecture, Cynthia will help you think about how to research the history of your home by recounting her own investigations into her Newark-Granville Road house.  This event is free and open to the public.  Bryn Du is at 537 Jones Rd, Granville.

Cynthia Cunningham Cort came to Granville and bought her house, which is across the street, in 1992. She was born in Washington DC and grew up in Alexandria, VA. She attended the University of Wisconsin, majored in Indian Textiles, and has spent several years in India researching textile techniques. While living in Cambridge MA during her husband John's graduate work she did accounting for artists and was collection manager at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. Since arriving in Granville she has worked for the Denison University library as a cataloger of Federal Publications, with the Granville Historical Society as collection manager and currently Vice President, and at the Works in Newark. And now she will tell us about how she researched the story of her house and its occupants.
