Betty Intagliata Lecture Series Title: John Nolen Plan of Venice, Florida

  • May 17, 2022
  • Location and Topic -- TBA

January - June, 2022

In the wake of the pandemic, VAHS Program Chair Betty Intagliata has tentative plans to start in-person programs for 2021-2022 in January 2022 and ending the series in June instead of May.  The general topic will be John Nolen, and specific programs will address aspects of his plans for Venice, the John Nolen Historic District, and the general topic of Historic Preservation.  John Nolen planned only two cities from the “bottom-up,” one being Venice, Florida and the other Mariemont, Ohio.  Betty will spend the summer planning the series and identifying speakers.  She hopes that the community, particularly new residents, will find this topic educational and interesting.

More details to come.

*The Betty Intagliata Lecture Series is sponsored by the Venice Area Historical Society, with permanent funding provided by the Bill Jervey, Jr. Charitable Foundation.  All programs are FREE and OPEN to the public.
