Frank Lloyd Wright Revisited

Wednedsay January 16, 2019
Location: Grimsby Town Hall Chambers
160 Livingston Ave., Grimsby
Speakers:  Ken and Linda Bauman

  • Over a 15 year period, Ken and Linda Bauman travelled across the United States to tour 40 houses, commerical and instituational structures designed by American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright

  • Wright's productive period spanned more than 70 years

  • His visionary creations were strongly influenced by the natural world and he emphasized craftsmanship while embracing technology's ability to make design accessible to all

  • Ken and Linda revisit some of Wright's iconic buildings and we learn how many of his creative ideas are reflected in the interior desgin of our homes and in the architecture on new development in our community.

Volunteers Thank the OTF

Volunteers are excited about the approval and implementation of an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant enabling the purchase and installation of new computer equipment and software.   The OTF is an agency of the Government of Canada and Canada's largest granting foundation.  Over $110 million is awarded annually to some 1000 non-profit and charitable organizations across the province. 

The Grimsby Historical Society is thankful and honoured to be selected as a recipient of an Ontario Trillium Grant.

We know the results of this grant will enable us to continue to Preserve and Share Grimsby's Past for the Future.
