The Vernacular Architecture Forum will meet for its 2018 Annual Conference on the banks of the Potomac River. The region preserves distinct culture and resources, which predate the founding of our nation’s capital by more than a century. Alexandria, Virginia, a vibrant early urban center of domestic, commercial, and industrial resources, lies across the Potomac from Washington and from Southern Maryland, an agricultural landscape that showcases the evolution of three centuries of tobacco culture.
Conference headquarters will be at the Crowne Plaza Old Town Hotel in Alexandria, which provides notable venues for the major conference gatherings.
A Book Exhibit will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 7:30 am - 5 pm for interested presses. Set-up will be Friday, May 4 from 3-8 pm and each exhibitor will be provided with a skirted and draped table, two chairs, and access to both electricity and wi-fi.
