Photo courtesy of Myron Stachiw.My first engagement with vernacular architecture studies began during my years as an undergraduate in anthropology and historical archaeology at Brown University in the early 1970s.  I was fortunate to be at Brown when James Deetz was teaching there and also working at Plimoth Plantation, where he and Henry Glassie transformed the museum’s presentation and interpretation of early New England culture and material life, especially architecture.  At Brown I also had the privilege of studying with an illustrious cohort of fellow undergraduate- and graduate students, many of whom have made significant contributions to the fields of historical archaeology and vernacular architecture studies during the past half century.

    After several years working as an archaeologist, I undertook graduate studies in the American and New England Studies Program at Boston University, benefitting greatly from coursework and engagement with Dr. Abbot Lowell Cummings, then director of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities and founding member and first president of the VAF.  I attended my first VAF conference in 1980 and have been an active and committed member ever since (except for the nearly nine years from 2004 -2012 when I lived and worked in Ukraine), serving on the VAF Board of Directors twice (1996-1999 and 2016- present), and chairing the VAF annual conference in Newport, RI, in 2001.

    I have long had a close relationship with archaeological and architectural fieldwork, and joined a number of my VAF colleagues in the continued development and practice of buildings archaeology.  Over the years I have organized and taught (with other VAF colleagues) six field schools in buildings archaeology throughout New England.  During the past several years I have been involved with VAF’s Orlando Ridout V Fieldwork Fellowship awards program as chair and committee member, encouraging and supporting fieldwork as a key component of vernacular architecture studies.

    The VAF and its members have been an important influence on my scholarly and professional development as an historian and interpreter of material culture and material life, both in the past and in the present.  It has provided both inspiration and refuge.  I am deeply indebted to my teachers, colleagues, and friends for all that I have learned with them and from them, and am committed to passing that knowledge on to others – students, scholars, and stewards of historical places, objects, and collective/contested memory.

    Susane Havelka, postdoc Fellow at Memorial University in St John’s Newfoundland, co-authored Blueprint for a Hack: Leveraging Informal Building Practices published by ACTAR and will be available in June.

    Summary: Over five days, some 60 residents of a northern village teamed with designers from southern Quebec to conceive and build an outdoor community pavilion that activates a central recreational area."Blueprint for a Hack" aims to reimagine community spaces. Faced with extreme housing shortages, physical isolation, and a challenging climate, outdoor public spaces in northern communities remain largely undesigned and underused. These 'in-between' spaces are strewn with stuff. Most housing and civic buildings in the communities emerge from and stand like physical markers of Euro-Canadian values. The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada has begun a discourse on design in northern Canadian communities, but discussions continue to dwell on housing and civic buildings. A strong need exists to open conversations about design and the public realm in northern villages, which this project tries to address, creating a unique experience in which northern and southern groups could apply a "hacking mindset" to reimagine community spaces.

    Postcard courtesy of Vivian Wadlin CollectionWilliam Rhoads is preparing a publication on Elverhoj, the Arts &
    Crafts colony active in Milton-on-Hudson, New York, c. 1912 to 1935.
    Established by Danish-American silversmiths Anders Andersen and
    Johannes Morton, Elverhoj attracted artists who produced metalwork,
    jewelry, paintings, prints, textiles, and book-bindings in a rural
    setting overlooking the Hudson River. The main building, a c. 1840
    classical mansion, was transformed into a "Moorish Terrace" with
    Viking decorative motifs, while huts and rustic cottages were added as
    studios and seasonal homes. Elverhoj received a mixed review when
    visited by C. R. Ashbee in 1915, but won a gold medal at the
    Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco that year and was favorably
    written up in Gustav Stickley's Craftsman magazine in 1916. Rhoads is planning an Elverhoj exhibition with the Ulster County Historical Society and seeks material made at Elverhoj and unpublished papers.  Please contact him at rhoadsw@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu.

    In November the VAF Ambassadors from UMW,  Garek Hannigan, Brenden Bowman, and Emily Whaley, had the opportunity to present to their peers in the Preservation Club on their experiences in Philadelphia.  Club members were reported to be very interested in the trip and hope to learn more about vernacular architecture.  Thanks to the ambassadors for sharing.  Bravo!

    At the 2019 Pennsylvania statewide preservation conference, held in 19-21 June at Wilson College (Chambersburg) a whole day-long track was reserved for presentations on farms and barns, by both the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission staff (with some others that they invited to share the first hour) and five board members of the Historic Barn and Farm Foundation of Pennsylvania (HBFF) including the author, also a VAF member.   

    There were presentations on how to use the state agricultural context in making National Register arguments.  This included an update on what the state is now doing to revise the extensive agricultural context document (Multiple Property Documentation Form), first prepared about 5-10 years ago by a team led by Sally McMurry, a VAF member and a former HBFF board member. 

    There was also a presentation by an expert on barn decorations (Patrick Donmoyer, former HBFF President) such as the star patterns commonly called "hex signs," as well as a 2-person team presentation on the nomenclature for the parts of a historic barn by an architectural historian and a real-life timberframer (Jeff Marshall, another former HBFF President, and Michael Cuba, a VAF member). 

    One presentation was on the parts and field layout characteristics (as a kind of vernacular design) of Pennsylvania's pre-1880 farm landscapes.  The landscape piece began with a concern that the "land" itself, in the sense of field surfaces and the vernacular design aspects of fence lines and field layouts, has not been very well represented in Pennsylvania National Register analysis to date.  It was noted that the surfaces, shapes, terrain, and other layout characteristics are important historic resources in their own right as the evidence of the agriculture that occurred there since they are the places where plants actually grow and where animals actually graze.  As a conservative estimate, the state may have historically contained as many as a million farm fields, nearly all "developed" over time through careful farming with clearing of trees and rocks and the gradual development of fertile topsoil, by an average of 10 generations of Pennsylvania farmers per farm.  Certain field types and patterns relate to specific animals or crops, in what was once a large symbiotic system of plant and animal activities, with animals providing what plants needed and plants providing what animals needed.  If seen as a form of vernacular design, the farm fields of Pennsylvania arguably represent the commonwealth's most abundant vernacular "typological" category as well as being one of the most important visual characteristics associated with Pennsylvania that should be preserved.

    The symposium ended with a panel discussion on farms and barns, followed by a showing of a new public television film "Barns of the Susquehanna Valley."
