Virtual Lecture – A Return to 1774: The 21st Century Restoration of the James Brice House
August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Please note: If you previously registered for the March 2021 lecture, you will need to re-register for the August lecture.
Join Michael K. Day, Senior Vice President, Capital Projects at Historic Annapolis, as he offers a behind-the-scenes look at the daunting task of researching, investigating, and painstakingly restoring one of the most iconic 5-part colonial mansions in Annapolis. Mostly shrouded in mystery for decades, the James Brice House Restoration Project will allow it to be open to the public like it never has before. The ultimate goal of this state-of-the-art restoration is to return both the interior and exterior of the house to its appearance when construction was completed in 1774. Of course, no tour of the Brice House would be complete without some discussion of the spirits that still walk its halls and climb its staircases…or not.
Presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, a live Q&A with Michael Day will follow the virtual video tour.
