Seminar: Henrietta Street and Hentown: from Georgian beginnings to tenement living

Please note: This event is fully booked

Dublin City Council and the Tenement Museum Dublin present a one-day seminar showcasing new historical research generated over the last two years as part of the development of the museum. The research sets out to answer some key questions that this unique street prompts. Who were the street’s first residents in the mid-18th century? What were the influences that shaped the architecture of its 15 houses and how do they differ from each other? How did the street become home to between 800 and 900 people by 1911? What was tenement life like during the mid-20th century? And finally, where did people move to from the tenements?

King’s Inns, Dublin 1 on 11th October from 9.30am-5pm

Booking required at Eventbrite: henrietta-street.eventbrite.ie. Tickets are free but booking is essential (limited to 1 ticket per booking).
