The Hudson Area Library, in collaboration with the Leisler Institute for the Study of Early New York History & the Gotham Center for New York City History, presents: A Truly American Form: Anglo Dutch Houses, Their Roots, Form, and Legacy by Ian Stewart. In the former New Netherland a new house form arose in the latter years of the 18th century and became a common sight in New England in the first half of the 19th century.

This talk focuses on the framing of these houses and their various forms, as well as a brief discussion of their English and Dutch predecessors, and the circumstances which may have led to the creation of this hybrid. 

Ian Stewart is owner of New Netherland Timber Framing and Preservation, past president of the Board of Directors of the Preservation Trades Network, and a member of the Timber Framer’s Guild. He received a Master’s degree in Preservation Studies from Boston University’s School of American and New England Studies. His woodworking career began at SUNY New Paltz and, later, as a restoration craftsman at Historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz, New York. He is involved in preserving historic traditions in woodworking, timber framing, blacksmithing, and masonry skills. He received the New Netherland Institute’s Alice P. Kenney Award in 2018.
