Afternoon Lecture Series
Wednesday, 1:15pm - 3:00pm

Christopher Quirk: Stabilization at Locust Grove
Preservation architect Christopher Quirk will present an overview of the assessment process and design considerations that led to the selected treatment of Locust Grove. The presentation will also include progress photos from the installation of the wall anchors and removal of flooring at the attic level. Last summer’s masonry reinforcement project was the culmination of seven years of assessment and design exploration by architects and engineers who specialize in historic preservation. Concerns about bowing of the gable end walls prompted a survey of the exterior masonry and laser scanning of the exterior walls. John Milner Associates prepared plan and elevation drawings to assist in analysis and inspected the masonry from the ground and high reach lifts. Review and organization of existing historic documentation informed the assessment and guided the work of structural engineers Robert Silman Associates from Alexandria, Virginia and the local office of TetraTech, Inc. The task of stabilizing walls was made particularly challenging as the extensive interior reinterpretation had been completed, and ceiling and wall finishes could not be compromised. The final solution included the use of traditional star anchors as well as the installation of high-tech Cintec concealed anchors, an approach that limited the evidence of the repairs.
Christopher Quirk has had the privilege of working on many local and national treasures including the U. S. Marine Hospital (Louisville), Sage Chapel at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY), Ohio State University, Ellis Island, and the Woodrow Wilson Family Home (Columbia, SC). He is particularly attached to Locust Grove where he has been working off and on since 2003. His Locust Grove work has included assessment of condition before and after blasting on adjacent property, a conservation assessment, structural reinforcement of the existing masonry walls, and replacement of the main house roof.

The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.

Afternoon Lecture Series
Wednesday, 1:15pm - 3:00pm

Faces & Places in Kentucky Quilts & Textiles – Sandy Staebell
Quilts and other textiles frequently use faces and places that are tied to memory and provide a sense of identity, family, or place. In some, these images were based on real-life individuals such as President George Washington and Kentuckians Henry Clay, George Rogers Clark, and Robert Penn Warren, while in others they were inspired by fictional characters such as Don Quixote or children, real and or imagined. Examples of "places" found in textiles include state quilts, governmental buildings, churches, and honeymoon cottages. Sandy Staebell is the Registrar and Collections Curator at the Kentucky Museum at Western Kentucky University. This program was funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities Council, Inc. and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.

Summer Thursday Concert Series with Kentucky Opera
Thursday, 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Enjoy your opera favorites as explored through the history of Locust Grove.
Settler William Croghan was calling Louisville home by 1784. That same year, Mozart became a Freemason in Austria, personally adapting ideals that not only influenced the American Founding Fathers, but would later embed themselves in his acclaimed opera, The Magic Flute . When The Magic Flute premiered a few years later in 1792, Italian opera legend Gioacchino Rossini was born in Italy, and back in Kentucky, William and Lucy Clark Croghan were building their home, Locust Grove. The Croghan family sold the land to riverboat captain James Paul in 1878, when productions of Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S Pinafore premiered in the states, inspiring great interest in light opera throughout the country. When the site was purchased by Jefferson County and the Commonwealth of Kentucky and subsequently restored and opened to the public in 1964, Kentucky Opera was producing Bizet’s Carmen, Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte and Verdi’s Rigoletto.

“Kentucky’s Audubon”: An Account of the Life and Work of John James Audubon in Kentucky

John James Audubon, America’s first great artist, lived in Kentucky for nearly 13 years. He began his married life here, his four children were born in Kentucky, and he made many drawings for his life’s work, Birds of America, in Kentucky. Audubon’s Kentucky years had a profound impact on his family and his work as an artist-naturalist. Jennifer Spence, curator of the John James Audubon Museum in Henderson, KY, will use examples from her museum’s collection as a lens for understanding “Kentucky’s Audubon.”
The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.

Afternoon Lecture Series
Wednesday, 1:15pm - 3:00pm

Christopher Quirk: Stabilization at Locust Grove
Preservation architect Christopher Quirk will present an overview of the assessment process and design considerations that led to the selected treatment of Locust Grove. The presentation will also include progress photos from the installation of the wall anchors and removal of flooring at the attic level. Last summer’s masonry reinforcement project was the culmination of seven years of assessment and design exploration by architects and engineers who specialize in historic preservation. Concerns about bowing of the gable end walls prompted a survey of the exterior masonry and laser scanning of the exterior walls. John Milner Associates prepared plan and elevation drawings to assist in analysis and inspected the masonry from the ground and high reach lifts. Review and organization of existing historic documentation informed the assessment and guided the work of structural engineers Robert Silman Associates from Alexandria, Virginia and the local office of TetraTech, Inc. The task of stabilizing walls was made particularly challenging as the extensive interior reinterpretation had been completed, and ceiling and wall finishes could not be compromised. The final solution included the use of traditional star anchors as well as the installation of high-tech Cintec concealed anchors, an approach that limited the evidence of the repairs.
Christopher Quirk has had the privilege of working on many local and national treasures including the U. S. Marine Hospital (Louisville), Sage Chapel at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY), Ohio State University, Ellis Island, and the Woodrow Wilson Family Home (Columbia, SC). He is particularly attached to Locust Grove where he has been working off and on since 2003. His Locust Grove work has included assessment of condition before and after blasting on adjacent property, a conservation assessment, structural reinforcement of the existing masonry walls, and replacement of the main house roof.

The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.

Faces & Places in Kentucky Quilts & Textiles – Sandy Staebell
Quilts and other textiles frequently use faces and places that are tied to memory and provide a sense of identity, family, or place. In some, these images were based on real-life individuals such as President George Washington and Kentuckians Henry Clay, George Rogers Clark, and Robert Penn Warren, while in others they were inspired by fictional characters such as Don Quixote or children, real and or imagined. Examples of "places" found in textiles include state quilts, governmental buildings, churches, and honeymoon cottages. Sandy Staebell is the Registrar and Collections Curator at the Kentucky Museum at Western Kentucky University. This program was funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities Council, Inc. and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 pm. Admission is $6, $4 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.

Summer Thursday Concert Series with Kentucky Opera
Thursday, 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Enjoy your opera favorites as explored through the history of Locust Grove.
Settler William Croghan was calling Louisville home by 1784. That same year, Mozart became a Freemason in Austria, personally adapting ideals that not only influenced the American Founding Fathers, but would later embed themselves in his acclaimed opera, The Magic Flute . When The Magic Flute premiered a few years later in 1792, Italian opera legend Gioacchino Rossini was born in Italy, and back in Kentucky, William and Lucy Clark Croghan were building their home, Locust Grove. The Croghan family sold the land to riverboat captain James Paul in 1878, when productions of Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S Pinafore premiered in the states, inspiring great interest in light opera throughout the country. When the site was purchased by Jefferson County and the Commonwealth of Kentucky and subsequently restored and opened to the public in 1964, Kentucky Opera was producing Bizet’s Carmen, Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte and Verdi’s Rigoletto.

“Kentucky’s Audubon”: An Account of the Life and Work of John James Audubon in Kentucky

John James Audubon, America’s first great artist, lived in Kentucky for nearly 13 years. He began his married life here, his four children were born in Kentucky, and he made many drawings for his life’s work, Birds of America, in Kentucky. Audubon’s Kentucky years had a profound impact on his family and his work as an artist-naturalist. Jennifer Spence, curator of the John James Audubon Museum in Henderson, KY, will use examples from her museum’s collection as a lens for understanding “Kentucky’s Audubon.”
