The Lyman Estate :: Making the Old House New Again
Wednesday June 27, 2012 from 6-8 pm
The Lyman Estate, 185 Lyman Street, Waltham MA
The National Historic Landmark Lyman Estate, also known as "The Vale," is one of three great country estates in Waltham and has recently been updated with twenty-first-century energy enhancements.
Built in 1793, enlarged in 1882-3 and remodeled in 1917, The Vale preserves the legacy of four generations of the Lyman family, including gardens and greenhouses that are among the country's oldest and most significant landscape resources.
Join the Boston Preservation Alliance and Historic New England for this exclusive event for Historic New England Young Friends and Boston Preservation Alliance Young Professional Members.
The evening will start with a brief talk highlighting the history of the house and family, with an overview of the weatherization solutions that make this old house new again. A tour of the mansion will follow and we'll cap the evening off with cocktails on the veranda.
