Constructed between 1811 and 1923, this collection of buildings, and most notably the Wellington Hotel, have been the venue for much of the city's history. If these walls could talk, they would tell stories of political decisions made over cigars i back rooms. Join HAF and Bill Brandow for a lecture on the history of this fascinating row. Reservations are required. Contact Nicki at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518.465.0876, ext. 10.
