On Saturday, Aug. 8, 2020 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., the eighth in a series of architectural walking tours will take place around the downtown area churches of Westfield.
The intent of this tour is to look at the diverse architectural styles of five of the many churches – some having great historic significance near downtown Westfield. Gregory Blasi, R.A. local architect and principal of Vincentsen & Blasi Architects and Westfield Historical Society President, will lead the tour and answer questions.
Mr. Blasi will discuss how the architecture of these churches differs depending on the time they were built and the design elements unique to the churches. Pending approvals from the churches, some may take place inside the church.
The tour will accommodate 20 attendees, but additional tours will be scheduled if interest warrants. It will take place rain or shine. Participants are encouraged to wear face masks, bring hand sanitizer and practice appropriate social distancing. The tour meet-up location will be provided to registrants. Please RSVP by email to email@example.com; or call 908-654-1794.
A donation to the Westfield Historical Society would be appreciated: $10 for members, and $20 for non-members, and will be collected at the start of the tour. Membership information will be available.
