Thursdays at the Museum: Lunch and Program

March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the Phelps Mansion Museum as we kick off our 2024 Thursdays at the Museum: Lunch and Program series.

On Thursday March 14th A presentation by Roger Luther on the life and work of Binghamton’s most famous architect, Isaac Perry. Perry’s career as an architect took a giant leap in 1858 with his design of the New York State Inebriate Asylum in Binghamton. Now known as the “Castle on the Hill,” this building has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Perry went on to design many of this area’s most spectacular churches, commercial blocks and residences, as well as dozens of state armories and other structures throughout New York State. In his later years, Perry filled the role of State Architect and served as lead architect for completion of the New York State Capitol.

Although much of Perry’s later work is well-known, very little is known of his childhood, early career and personal life. This presentation includes rare photos of Perry’s earliest creations while working as an apprentice with his father in the Adirondack region and resolves a few mysteries of his personal life.
