Essex, New York Architecture in the News
“Most towns modified and changed over time. But Essex was preserved by neglect, says George Davis, the co-author of a new book chronicling the town’s history through the art of doodling. The town’s well-preserved buildings — mostly Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival and Victorian-style architecture — remain a popular drawing point for the community, making it a popular summertime destination. Essex, New York Architecture: A Doodler’s Field Guide, co-authored by Katie Shepard, encourages visitors to discover new ways of interacting with these structures… Alongside the 200-plus drawings of some of the town’s most prominent buildings — Greystone Cottage, John Gould House and the Essex Inn — the 168-page version places the structures into historical context.” ~Pete DeMola, The Sun Community News
