KEVIN GARDNER Presents: DISCOVERING NEW ENGLAND STONE WALLS
Sponsored by the Andover Historical Society with a grant from The New Hampshire Humanities
Why are we so fascinated with stone walls? Kevin Gardner explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, how they were built, and how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to our famous landscape. Along the way, Kevin will build a miniature wall on a tabletop using tiny stones from a five gallon bucket. Kevin Gardner is a writer, teacher, tradesman, and a lifelong resident of Hopkinton. He has built stone walls for 40 years and is a poet, song writer, and essayist as well as the author of “The Granite Kiss: Traditions and Techniques of Building New England Stone Walls.” Refreshments will be available following the program.
