The annual meeting of the Glen Ridge Historical Society will take place at the Glen Ridge Train Station (224 Ridgewood Avenue) on April 26 at 7:30pm. Guest speaker, Jim Garrison, will talk about the domestic architecture of John Russell Pope, using three houses in South Jersey as his case studies. Although Pope is largely known for his public building projects such as the Jefferson Memorial (1943) and the National Gallery of Art (1941), he enjoyed great success as a private architect. Our speaker is an architect and author with over 30 years experience and several books to his credit. He lives in the Philadelphia area, where he is active in local and regional preservation.
A short business meeting will precede the presentation. Refreshments will be served afterwards. The program is open to the public.
