|Antebellum architect program set at Jefferson College|
Most men who designed houses and buildings before the Civil War had no formal architectural training. Yet in Natchez, many of their beautiful structures still stand today.
A program featuring Todd Sanders slated for 12 noon Tuesday, May 15, at Historic Jefferson College in Washington, Miss., will cover architecture of the time between the end of the Mexican-American War, circa 1848, and the beginning of the Civil War in 1861. Sanders will view not only the mansions, churches, courthouses and other grand public buildings that most architecture aficionados are familiar with, but also the buildings that often get ignored -- schools, industrial buildings, and commercial buildings, as well as the houses of the middle class.
Sanders has a B.A. in history and a master's degree in architectural history from Mississippi State University. He has worked as an architectural historian with the Mississippi Department of Archives and History since 1999.
The program is free of charge!
Historic Jefferson College is located in off Hwy. 61, in Washington, 4 miles northeast of Natchez. It is administered by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
