Summer Lecture & Luncheon

Every year the NPT Summer Lecture & Luncheon features a leader from the fields of architecture, preservation, landscape design or interior design whose work contributes to the preservation of our shared historic heritage. Our lecture is followed by a leisurely luncheon in a lovely setting.

On Tuesday, July 23, Gil Schafer III of Schafer Buccatello Architects will be the featured speakers for the 2024 Summer Lecture at the Ballroom at the White Elephant Village.
