NCBC Presents Jim Remsen on 20th Century History of our Neighborhood and Homes

March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NCBC board member Jim Remsen, a journalist and history researcher, will focus on the section of Cynwyd where he lives, an 85-house tract developed a century ago under the now-forgotten name of “Lodge Manor.” He will discuss the homes’ classic architectural styles and will profile their prominent architects and builders. Jim also will tell us about some of Lodge Manor’s fascinating early residents — scientists, inventors, entrepreneurs, rowhouse kids who had made it big in the Roaring Twenties, live-in help who had fled the Jim Crow South, and more. And he will provide handy resources for people who want to look into their own homes and prior occupants.”
