The setting is Ridgefield, 1910. Famous architect Cass Gilbert, who lives in the “Cannon Ball House” on Main Street, has just received a commission from F.W. Woolworth, the department store tycoon, for a new headquarters building in New York City. The architect has persuaded Woolworth that the building should reach for the sky and deploy the latest in engineering and technology, including an elevator and electricity. Mr. Gilbert and his Senior Apprentice are excited about the possibility of designing such a challenging structure, but need to hire the right staff, including Junior Apprentices. Where to find qualified help?
If your son or daughter is entering Grades 4 – 6 in the fall and is interested in applying for a job as a Junior Apprentice at the Architectural Design Firm of Cass Gilbert, located at the Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTHC) at 132 Main Street in Ridgefield, please visit keelertavernmuseum.org or call 203-438-5485 for more information.
