The Handley Regional Library is celebrating 100 years of service this year! Funded by Judge John Handley of Scranton, Pennsylvania for the “free use of the people of the city of Winchester,” the library’s construction began in 1908 and was completed in 1913.
With its iconic dome and colonnades, the building is one of the most recognizable and beloved structures in Winchester. Richard Guy Wilson, Commonwealth Professor and Chair, Department of Architectural History at UVA, will lecture about the important contribution Handley Library made to 20th century architecture in Virginia. The event will take place Wednesday, May 15th at 7pm.
