Denison, Texas -- The Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Site in Denison, Texas has teamed up with the Denison Public Library to give a series of talks aimed at teens and adults for the 2019-2020 year. The “kick-off” talk will be held on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:00 p.m. inside the Denison Public Library, 300 W. Gandy. The free talk, titled “Working Class Architecture in North Texas,” coincides with the temporary exhibit that will soon be installed at the Eisenhower Birthplace on “Carpenter Gothic Architecture.”

Robin Cole-Jett, EBSHS Educator, will examine architectural styles in the post-Civil War period through photographs of houses found in North Texas, such as the enclosed dogtrot once owned by Charles DeMorse of Clarksville, Texas (see photo).
