Bruce MacDonald: The History and Renovation of the Smedley House

On Saturday, October 10th at the Milne Public Library Bruce MacDonald will talk on The History and Renovation of the Smedley House. The Smedley House is the striking 1772 house at the corner of Colonial Village currently under renovation. The house’s new owner, Bruce, will discuss the historical significance of this 18th century home, its historic construction, and current renovation (detailing how the 18th century construction gets to the 23rd century).

The lecture will even include information about Bill Flynt’s dendrochronological analysis of the beams in the home that helped pinpoint a date for initial construction. Bruce is the current owner of the Smedley House. A history buff, fan of historic architecture and experienced developer, Bruce is enthusiastic about this project and has made some amazing discoveries. He is working to preserve the historic character of the Smedley home while making it livable for homeowners in 2015 and and two centuries into the future!
