As part of its Speaker Series, the Great Neck Historical Society will host noted architect, author and historic preservationist Kevin Wolfe on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. at Great Neck House, 14 Arrandale Ave.

 

His talk will cover the development of the planned communities of Kensington and Douglas Manor built more than a century ago by the architects Richert & Findlay. Wolfe will feature many never-before-seen photographs of the early days of Kensington from his research on the historic neighborhoods of Long Island. He has written a chapter in the new book, Gardens of Eden: Long Island’s Early Twentieth-Century Planned Communities, published by the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities. The Speaker Series is part of the society’s mission to collect, preserve and present the history and heritage of the Great Neck peninsula.
