York Georgian Society was founded in 1939 to promote the preservation and care of Georgian buildings in and around York, England, while fostering the study and appreciation of them. It is the second oldest society outside London devoted to the Georgian era.
The Society’s remit extends beyond architecture and the crafts associated with building to include the arts, culture and society of the period from 1660, the year of George I’s birth, to 1837, the year of William IV’s death.
