Woburn Public LibraryThis Monday, October 6th at the Woburn Memorial High School at 6 PM, a guest speaker will be talking about Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886).  He was aprominent and well known architect who was best known in this area for his design of our own Woburn Public Library as well as the Trinity Church in Boston.  Richardson was the most influential figure in late 19th-century American architecture.  Having received a superior education at Harvard and the first American to be trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Richardson returned to the United States to open a practice in New York, eventually settling in Brookline, Massachusetts.
