historic talk: italianate architecture at the James

Architect James Kelliher of Axiom Architects in Norwell will talk about the characteristics of Italianate architecture--focusing on the James Library in Norwell Center. Learn why this building style was so popular in South Scituate (Norwell) in the late 1800s, and hear about Axiom Architects' plans for an addition in the back of the James to make the building accessible to all.  The James is located at 24 West Street in Norwell Center. This event will take place on the main floor with only a few steps (with a railing) to navigate.
