First Columbians Honors Architects
Jamie Larson reports from Kinderhook. Our region’s notable architects and their work to protect, restore and add to our rich architectural history was honored Saturday, June 13 by the Columbia County Historical Society. The posh gala, called First Columbians, was held on the grounds of the Vanderpoel House of History, a great example of the heritage architects work so hard to restore while also designing the future. The event showcased the work of BarlisWedlick Architects, James Dixon Architect PC, Kate Johns and James Joseph of Hottenroth + Joseph. Set during a perfect, bright late spring afternoon, the First Columbians soiree seemed to celebrate the beauty of the season as much as that of the manmade structure on display.
