The Architectural Heritage Center (AHC) is bringing back its popular series on how to research the history of a vintage home or building this month.
The virtual four-part series takes place on Saturday mornings 10-11 am, starting on Saturday, November 13 and continues (skipping the weekend after Thanksgiving) through Saturday, December 11.
Educator, historian, author and lifelong resident of the Portland area, Val Ballestrem, takes attendees through the steps necessary to uncover the history of your house or Portland-area building using the latest online sources, local archives and libraries.
Individual session registration allows people to attend one, two, three or all four parts of the series as they choose. Each part is $10 for non-members and free for AHC members.
Non-members planning to attend all four parts of the series may want to consider becoming an AHC member.
Individual membership is only $5 more than the cost of the four parts of this program, at $45 per year.
Membership benefits include complimentary admission to all AHC exhibits and discounted admission to education programs; complimentary use of the AHC library by appointment; invitations to exhibit openings and special events; discounts on AHC rentals; free admission to museums and attractions with reciprocal member, including the Oregon Zoo, Lan Su Chinese Garden and others; and one single-visit exhibit admission pass to share
