Chestnut Hill Historical Society – Architectural Hall of Fame

Nov 16, 2016 | Musings, Tallulah Blooms

A village neighborhood within a world class city. Articulated by world class architecture. Originally, a summer getaway from “Town”, the Chestnut Hill neighborhood has been honored by Forbes Magazine as one of the best neighborhoods in the country. I agree. The Chestnut Historical Society is a critical organization for our community. Founded in 1967 by Shirley Hanson in response to legitmate concerns that Chestnut Hill’s treasured architecture was being threatened, the organization continues to do incredibly important work. The Architectural Hall of Fame was conceived by the current executive director, Lori Salganicoff. She is a passionate leader of CHHS and this town is very lucky to have her and her incredible staff be the stewards of all that we treasure about Chestnut Hill. The board of directors is a truly working board that care deeply about the mission and about Chestnut Hill. With a mission for sustainability, preservation and responsible advancement and development, they had me at hello! It was our honor to chair and host this event. I honestly love creating an atmosphere in which guests feel welcomed and appreciated, as without their support, there would be no fund raiser! There was an abundance of generosity from so many people; all eager to be a part of what turned out to be a beautiful evening with spectacular weather! Sotheby’s Champagne, Liberty Gin, Sweet Nectar Bakery, Moore Brother’s Wine, and the phenomenal Bacchus Caterers made this a most delicious celebration!
