WILLIAMSTOWN -- "Houses on the Move in Williamstown" is the subject of a free public lecture on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 11 a.m. at the David and Joyce Milne Public Library. The move of Walden House from Spring Street to the current 311 Main St. address was taped as the home moved along Main Street in 1987 toward its new home. The original video of the event will be shown as part of the lecture.
Paul Harsch, the local real estate broker who bought Walden House for $1 and commissioned the move in 1987, also will recount the moving of other houses in Williamstown, providing a history of why, when and where they moved.
The lecture is the second in a series of three scheduled this fall by the Williamstown Historical Museum, which sponsors the free public events.
A 1969 graduate of Williams College, Harsch has owned and operated Harsch Associates Real Estate Agency since 1979. He is a licensed real estate instructor and broker who holds several specialized professional designations.
The WHM has more than 200 contributing members. It is free and open to the public Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment arranged by calling 413-458-2160.
