Discovering New England Stone Walls

Monday, February 29, 2016 
at 7:30pm at the Warner Town Hall

Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council,
in cooperation with the Warner Men’s Club

Why are we so fascinated with stone walls? Kevin Gardner, author of The Granite Kiss, explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time and their significance to the famous New England landscape. Along the way, Kevin occupies himself building a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop, using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket.
