THE MAKING OF A MUSEUM: Telling the story of 14 Henrietta Street with Charles Duggan, Dublin City Council Heritage Officer
3 October, 2018 @ 6:30 pm
SORRY – BOOKED OUT
Built as a townhouse for the elite, 14 Henrietta Street was split into tenements in the 1880s, with the last families leaving in the late 1970s. It’s been a 10-year project for Dublin City Council to stabilise, conserve and adapt 14 Henrietta Street – the walls, doors, banisters, old gas pipes, fireplaces, and fragments of linoleum and wallpaper carefully researched to contextualise the many stories of the house. Working with former residents of the tenements, that physical history has become uniquely layered with stunning social and family history.
