DECEMBER 2

The Branch House Restoration : The Branch House Roof, Trim and Windows

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

The roof and windows are defining features of the Branch House.  The diamond patterned windows enhance the medieval character of the building, the exterior woodwork relied on skilled craftsman to make adjustments on-site like medieval carpenters, and the roof system is a series of pitches with slate and flat surfaces now with modern coatings.  But these features are more than beautiful; they have to keep water out and their wear is showing. Our panel of experts will discuss the challenges of repairing building elements that pose the greatest risk to water infiltration that can either be highly visible or obscured.

The Branch Holiday Celebration

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

101 years ago the Branch family moved into this architectural treasure, the Branch House on Monument Avenue.  This is the second pandemic our beautiful House has experienced, and we want to conclude this extraordinary year with a Branch Holiday Celebration.

This year, instead doing our in-person get together, we will be doing a live virtual broadcast from The Branch Museum December 17 at 6:30 PM. Join us for an evening of holiday cheer! There will be a raffle with a winner announced during the broadcast. You can get a Party Box full of hors d’oeuvres, even add a bottle of wine!
