Perkins building. Thanks. -Editor
We will hold our 138th Annual Meeting next Wednesday, September 9. Join us in the Perkins Mint and hear about its brick restoration,
completed by Richard Irons Restoration Masons this summer. Richard will talk about his work restoring this veritable brick fortress where
Massachusetts money was printed in the 19th century. Afterwards, enjoy a reception with fellow Old Newbury members.
For the past forty years, Richard Irons has worked on and documented period brick and stone structures from foundation to finial. Along
the way, he has also restored forgotten practices of the mason's craft and become a leading practitioner in his field. Through
hard-earned experience, he has developed trade standards for investigation, preservation and reconstruction of masonry elements.
"Brick by Brick" Program with Richard Irons-6:30pm
