“Autohoods”

 

R.R. Smith Center for History and Art, Lecture Hall

The impact of the development of the automobile on architecture, neighborhood streets, and site design was profound for our community. Central and Greenville Avenues include along their length neighborhoods rich with automobile-centric architecture. Frank Strassler, HSF Executive Director will lead us on a discussion of these “Autohoods” within Staunton’s central districts.

We hope you can join us as we continue to expand our understanding of Staunton’s diverse and complex neighborhood histories through architecture and neighborhood design.
Open and free to the public!
