BRENT HULL of Brent Hull Companies, Inc.
Brent Hull   Craftsmanship
      Brent Hull, award winning author, architect, & historical craftsman will arrive from Texas to share his expertise on the Derby Summer House. Brent details his love of this Registered National Historic Landmark in his recent book: ‘Building a Timeless House in an Instant Age’.    
      Now that ‘Nutsie’ the squirrel & his family have been transported to a retirement community, Brent will discuss restoration of the Derby Summer House/McIntire Tea House due to the damage incurred this past winter. The Danvers Historical Society is also announcing a major capital campaign to renew this elegant 222-year-old 'summer house' that is the trademark of your 126-year-old society.

    A “skilled story teller”, Brent Hull’s narrative voice is clean and accessible; a more inspired, lyrical language sometimes arises when he broaches a topic such as the McIntire Tea House that truly excites him. The National Historical Landmark, here in Danvers, is an extremely rare example of an 18th-century summer house, and also includes some of the earliest american sculpture.

    1pm presentation; arrive early to stroll the historic garden rooms. Enjoy the gardens, sip champagne under the tent, meet Brent Hull, and hear the story of the Derby Summer House, aka: McIntire Tea House.  Join us! Celebrate the arrival of summer in the majestic gardens at Glen Magna Farms! Champagne & soft drinks! FREE and open to All!
