w/ Libby Cook, architectural historian
Join architectural historian Libby Cook as she explores the world of architectural ghosts – the physical remnants of changes made to buildings. Through the centuries, across the country, these ghosts represent the human mind at work, and at times are the only material remains of the men and women who conceived of them or constructed them. Architectural ghosts tell us not just about changing styles and tastes, but also about human ingenuity and adaptation. So bring your own curiosity and come learn to spot architectural ghosts in the wild – once you see them, you’ll never be able to stop!
Libby Cook received her PhD in American History from the College of William & Mary in 2017. Her research on early American building trades led her to opportunities in cultural resource management and historic preservation. She has since developed a career in those fields, including in the private sector, at the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, the Nevada Department of Transportation, and currently at the INL. Highlights so far include driving abandoned roads from the 1920s, exploring colonial-era attics, and talking her way into places she’s not supposed to be, like the crypt of Prague Castle.
