The 19th century philosopher and critic, John Ruskin, wrote of the “deep sense of voicefulness, stern watching, [and] mysterious sympathy…we feel in walls that have long been washed by passing waves of humanity.” The task of architectural historians is to be attuned to this “voicefulness,” which makes us privy to fascinating secrets as well as outright fabrications. Join Trish Smith, Drayton Hall’s Curator of Historic Architectural Resources, as we separate fact from fiction, and explore some tantalizing mysteries along the way.
