On Wednesday, April 30 at Preservation Worcester, I will be giving a talk about a project I've been working on for the organization - "It Doesn't Have to Look Old to be Historic: Worcester's Mid-20th-Century Dunroving Neighborhood." One of Worcester's more suburban neighborhoods, Dunroving was developed between the 1930s and 1970s. The area is a mix of Colonial Revival, Tudor, and Modern houses. Its early residents were white-collar workers from Worcester's major companies, as well as doctors and lawyers; later, the population shifted to become almost entirely Jewish. I'll be discussing the history of the neighborhood, the developers, the residents, and the different styles of buildings.
The talk begins at 5:30 pm and is free and open to the public. More information can be found on Preservation Worcester's website.
