YORKTOWN'S ARCHITECTURAL LEGACY

By Terry Naumann of the Yorktown Landmarks Commission. This builds on the talk that Terry gave in May, 2019, which she called “Six Feet Under and On Death Row”. Terry gives a virtual tour of Yorktown's houses that no longer exist, houses disappearing. These houses vary from the Seth Whitney farmhouse which was replaced by the Triangle Center in the 1960's to the Delavan House to the Weyant House which is about to be demolished to make way for modern housing. Although Terry claims not to be an architectural historian she has always loved learning about the history of places in Yorktown. Her background is in fine arts and has worked at various art institutions and museums. She has written profiles of Yorktown's Homes of Historic Distinction.

The evening will honor the Turkey Mountain Nature Preserve's 50th anniversary. It will lay out how the nature preserve came about, the people involved, its land purchases, its evolution, and its importance to the community. You will see the issues that could have or have not affected its history plus receive an overview of the entire area. The views from the top are fantastic.
