THIS HOUSE MATTERS- a documentary film by Tina Traster
Sunday, October 14

Palisades Community Center
675 Oak Tree Road   Palisades, NY

About the film:
The 30-minute documentary, This House Matters, is a behind-the-scenes look at the successes and failures of trying to preserve and restore several English and Dutch sandstone historic houses in the the Hudson Valley.

This House Matters tells the story of four historic houses: the Abram Lent House, that was unnecessarily demolished to make room for a parking lot; the John Green House, that a preservation group is trying to save after successfully convincing a bank to donate it; the Seth House, that is being incorporated into a new housing development, and the Vanderbilt/Budke House that has been "saved" but sits idle as its potential as a cultural jewel may be squandered. What these stories show - and they speak to so many similar stories in the region and nationwide - is that preservation of 18th and 19th century buildings, buildings that evoke nostalgia and invite mystery and delight us, are in peril, and that the mechanisms for saving them are extremely tenuous. Concerned, passionate citizens try all the time to "rescue" and preserve these buildings, but ultimately, government - village, town, county and state - need to do more to save these treasures.

Panel discussion following the film:
Mary Cardenas,  Town of Orangetown Historical Museum
Alice Gerard, Palisades Historian
Allan Ryff, Town of Orangetown Deputy Supervisor
Clare Sheridan, The Historical Society of Rockland County
Rick Tannenbaum, John Green Preservation Coalition
