PROGRAM

Have you ever wondered how Foley Square came to be surrounded by State and Federal courthouses and other buildings? History of Foley Square will find answers to this question by examining the migration of these buildings — some of them among our city’s foremost civic structures — within the context of the national civic center movement that arose in the early 1900s. The evening’s exploration will include a look at the important, and perhaps under-recognized, role taken by George McAneny, city planner and preservation advocate, in Foley Square’s development. Join us for this fascinating investigation!
