Victorian Alliance Meetings

Throughout its history the Alliance has held meeting on the last Wednesday of the month, January through October. These meetings give members the opportunity to learn about various topics such as restoration techniques, sources of building and decorative materials, and how to research the history of their home. In addition, speakers such as professional artisans and authors present subjects appealing to our members' wide range of interests-- everything from the history of the San Francisco Presidio to the reproduction of historic wallpaper.

Along with the business and educational aspects of the monthly meeting there is also a social component. Following some meetings, members enjoy refreshments, graciously provided by members, and the opportunity to meet with friends and talk with the evening's speaker.

One of the features that make the Alliance such a unique organization is meeting each month in interesting and often different locations. The generosity of individual homeowners, businesses, religious organizations, government agencies, and community groups has enabled our members to meet at sites as varied as splendidly restored private homes, factories and workshops producing reproduction hardware, custom milled wooden moldings, or custom designed windows, historic churches and synagogues, and landmark United States government courts.
