Researching Architecture at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

November 20, 2013 Posted by: Helene Herrick

At this time I am researching architecture.  I will study the architectural style called “The Second Empire”.  My essential question is: “What are the unique characteristics of this style?”  Some of the characteristics are the mansard roof and the clock tower. I think Madame Hanson is a good tour guide and is very friendly. I believe Madame Hanson has a good accent. I learned a lot about the Park. Although I visited the Park before, it was different in French. The guided tour was informative and educational. Overall I think the project is good.

En ce moment, je fais la recherche de l’architecture. Je vais étudier le style de l’architecture qui s’appelle « Le Second Empire ». Ma question essentielle est, quels sont les aspects uniques du  « Second Empire » le style de l’architecture? Quelques aspects du style sont : « Mansard Roof » et une tour centrale  avec un horloge.

Je pense que Mme. Hansen est une bonne guide et qu’elle est très gentille. Je crois que Mme. Hansen a un bel accent. J’ai beaucoup appris au sujet du park. Même si j’ai déjà fait visite c’est différent en français. La visite guidée était intéressante et éducative. En général, je trouve que le projet est bon.

In the early 1860s Vermonter Frederick Billings, then living in California, purchased and sent photographs of Yosemite Valley to influential eastern friends to make the case for its preservation. You can see these photographs, and paintings of Yosemite, at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP.
