Coming Up in 2019

Boscobel | Garrison, NY | July 16-17


Built between 1804 and 1808, Boscobel was originally the dream house of wealthy Loyalists. By the 1950s, after falling into disrepair, it was demolished. Preservationists saved as many architectural fragments as possible and reassembled them fifteen miles north, where the Neoclassical mansion was restored back to—and even beyond—its original grandeur.

 Graylyn Estate | Winston Salem, NC | October 29-30


Graylyn International Conference Center, located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, offers conference-goers the chance to experience their own private estate. Combining a modern, sophisticated conference facility and an enchanting, historic residence, Graylyn is a captivating example of traditional materials and methods.  


The Traditional Building Conference never fails to provide vital and timely material for the historic building architect.
                                                                 -Andrew Jerome Cannata, AIA

“The variety of technical vs. artistic talent was great!… I really liked the new format, had better connections with the vendors and got to know fellow attendees and presenters”

“Excellent speakers, informative, engrossing topics for a room full of architects.”

“Engaging as well as ‘Big Picture’”

“One of the very best seminar topics I have ever experienced. A real treat and changed the way I think about design.”

"Easily the best FOOD I've ever had at a conference."
