Following a brief annual meeting, the Greece Historical Society presents,


by: Katie Eggers Comeau

Strip malls, diners, ranch houses, fast-food restaurants – icons of the 1950s and 1960s

are coming of age! What should we save, and why?

In this illustrated presentation we'll find out why we should love – or at least appreciate –

the extraordinary and ordinary buildings of the post-war period. Preservationists around

the country are fighting to save some of the most beloved, and most hated, designs of

the era; we'll look at what this means for some of our area's own 20th-century icons.

Katie Eggers Comeau is the architectural historian at Bero Architecture PLLC, a Rochester

architecture firm specializing in historic preservation. Prior to joining the staff at Bero,

Katie was the director of preservation services at the Landmark Society of Western New York,

where she worked for over 8 years. A native of the Rochester area, Katie has a master's

degree in historic preservation from the University of Pennsylvania and a bachelor's degree

in humanities from Yale University.

Reservations are not required. Greece Historical Society members FREE.

donations are appreciated from others.
