Sunday, March 29, 2020 @ 2PM

Location: Mendon Unitarian Church, 13 Maple Street, Mendon

The Mendon Historical Society will host Brad Green of Colonial Restorations LLC for a presentation about historic architecture and restoring old homes on Sunday, March 29 at 2 p.m. at the Mendon Unitarian Church, 13 Maple St.

Since the age of 12, Green has worked alongside his father following his trade and passion for restoring historic timber framed homes and barns. Now he and his crew tackle structural restoration projects that most contractors would deem unfixable.
His work is driven by his passion to give historic buildings the love and care they deserve so they are preserved for future generations.

Green, who graduated from Wesleyan University in 2000, has owned and restored a 1775 home and is now living in a home built in 1780. Through stories and photos, he will share his greatest challenges and most memorable projects during his career
that have taken his team all over New England. Following his presentation, Green will open the floor to questions hoping to inspire homeowners and communities to invest in their valuable historic assets. Anyone who owns a historic home or appreciates their exceptional architecture, won’t want to miss this free presentation, to which all are invited.
