A free workshop will be held on “The Saluda Style” of architecture on April 12 at 10:30 a.m. upstairs at the Saluda Library.

The Saluda Historic Committee is offering this workshop in preparation for the Saluda Tour of Historic Homes and Gardens along Henderson Street on Saturday, June 1 from 1-5 p.m.

This workshop is titled “The Saluda Style: mountain cabins to resort cottages.” The speaker is Jennifer Cathey, preservation specialist with the N.C. Department of Historic Preservation. Cathey will discuss architectural building forms of the western North Carolina foothills and mountains and the development of residential and commercial building styles in Saluda through its heyday as a resort town.

Historic architecture is a specialty of Cathey’s and she provides technical assistance for historic building restoration and rehabilitation to property owners, businesses, non-profit organizations and local government within North Carolina’s 25 western most counties. There will be time for questions and discussion about your individual property at the end of her talk. Bring a brown bag lunch, drinks provided.
