One of Albany’s last Dutch houses had been hidden from view for decades, obscured by years of exterior alterations and slap-dash interior remodelings. Although most alterations were generally done to keep up with the times and changes of the architectural tastes of the time, some were an attempt to hide the historic importance of the building…lurking within.
Join HAF as Architectural historians Doug Bucher and Walter Wheeler, and architectural conservator Bill Brandow discuss the clues and experiences that led them to the discovery of the 1728 Van Ostrande-Radliff House concealed beneath the centuries of additions and alterations of 48 Hudson Street.
This telling of the Dutch house’s lively origin story will be moderated by Albany Archives’ Matt Malette, and will be recorded at Overit Media in the marvelous adaptive reuse of the former St. Teresa’s Church.

BUILT: Architecture through Artists' Eyes Art Exhibit & Silent Auction will take place on Saturday, November 3, 2018 at the New York State Museum.
A portion of the proceeds from the reception & art sales will benefit the Foundation's programming, technical services, and 48 Hudson initiative.
BUILT promotes awareness of the Capital Region’s built environment and raises funds for our preservation efforts.
For the past 17 years we've used our annual art exhibit & silent auction to highlight the issue of vacant buildings. With BUILT, we extend this artistic lens not just on vacant architecture but onto the three major cities’ BUILT environment.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of HAF’s Parts Warehouse, we are encouraging artists to consider salvaged and recycled materials.
Participating artists receive 50% of sold art displayed at the event. The remaining 50% will benefit Historic Albany Foundation's mission of protecting & preserving Albany's built environment.
