Blithewold Mansion welcomes Kevin O’Connor, host of the venerable This Old House and Ask This Old House television programs. Join us for a sneak preview of the current season and learn about the show’s latest project; a 1930s cottage in the woods. Learn how the show is made, enjoy behind-the-scene stories and photos, and have all of your home improvement questions answered. Kevin will also share stories and photos about the Barrington Rhode Island project showcased on This Old House last year.

After the presentation, Kevin will answer questions, shake hands and sign autographs. He will also personalize copies of his new book “The Best Homes of This Old House” (copies cost $35).

Following a short refreshment break, we will then switch over to “Our Old House.” Architect Olga Bachilova will teach some of the general rules and challenges of historic preservation by using samples of different New England Projects, including the exciting preservation projects happening at Blithewold. She will be presenting before, during, and after images of the construction.

  • Greenhouse thanksgiving (Nov 24, '14)
    No doubt about it, I have a lot to be thankful for. It might seem trivial compared to how grateful I am for things like my health and the amazing friends I’ve made here at Blithewold — and I also don’t mean to gloat — but I thank my lucky stars just about every time I […]
