Matthew Bender IV Lecture - 48 Hudson and the Stories It Tells

This talk will feature the Van Ostrande-Radliff House at 48 Hudson Avenue, the oldest building remaining in Albany, built in 1728. This program is presented by Historic Albany Foundation and the Albany Institute of History & Art.

We will welcome Michael Lynch, retired architect, and former director at the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation to give an overview of this building’s context locally, nationally and internationally. The lecture will also include a panel of experts speaking on who lived and worked in the building (Cara Macri, HAF Director of Preservation Services), the archeology found during the project (Matt Kirk, Hartgen Archeological), and the clues that led to many discoveries of the building’s appearance (project architect Matt Scheidt of John G. Waite Associates).


This lecture is in partnership with the
Historic Albany Foundation.
