Happy Holidays!

The Society welcomed in the holiday season with old friends and new at its Annual Holiday Party held December 11. The home of Andy and Carole Dinnhaupt on Chandler Road was the perfect location to host over 80 Chatham Historical Society members.

The Dinnhaupts graciously opened their recently renovated 1930s eclectic style house. The vintage home was enlarged and modernized while keeping its historical charm and character intact. Many original features including fireplaces with stunning mantels and gorgeous hardwood floors were beautifully restored. All the rooms were elegantly decorated, creating an ideal atmosphere for the gathering.

The mood was merry as holiday greetings were passed from friend to friend, while all enjoyed a delicious spread and festive libations. Karen Hoerrner, chair of the event said, “The party was a wonderful success and Carole and Andy were so kind to open up their amazing house at such a busy time of year.”

The celebration, an annual tradition, is the Society’s way of thanking its members for their support during the year.

This illustrated lecture by Janet W. Foster will focus on domestic architecture in the era of Queen Victoria. 

It will also explain why calling a building “Victorian” doesn’t help describe what it looks like, or even when it was built. The many architectural expressions of the period from about 1840 to 1900 will be touched upon, including the style called Queen Anne. Local examples will be used occasionally, but be prepared for an exciting, fast-paced survey of buildings from across the United States.
