What people say: "Our library recently hosted Betsy on zoom for her talk on the Cape Cod Modern House Trust, and our patrons thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. It was the perfect length, covering only the four homes that the Trust stewards, and included great visuals, photos, floor plans, and personal stories from Betsy's time as a tour guide with the Trust. Perfect for architecture and history buffs but also enjoyable for anyone who loves the Cape. Betsy was friendly, easy to work with, and welcomed questions at the end of her talk. We will have her back again soon. Highly recommend it!" Michael Achille, Local History Librarian, Hingham (MA) Public Library
"We recently hosted Betsy Bray for a unique Zoom presentation about the Architecture of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust. Traveling and exploring virtually was nice, but we cannot travel due to Coronavirus. Betsy speaks very clearly, has beautiful, informative slides & video footage, and allowed our small group to ask questions. Betsy mentioned her local ties to our area and connected with the audience while customizing the presentation to the local audience. Betsy was easy to work with, affordable, and set up the Zoom call for us. Not only was it easy and affordable, but our patrons were also pleased." Melissa Rickson, Senior Library Technician, Hubbard Library, Ludlow MA
"Betsy Bray's lecture on the "Hidden Architecture of Cape Cod" at the Atwood House Museum Chatham, MA, outlined (with wonderful photographs) the history of the modernist houses which were built throughout Wellfleet and Truro during the 1940s and '50s by noted artists, architects, and builders. These people proved how houses could be modern and inventive and still retain the charm and simplicity of the traditional old Cape house and preserve the Cape's fragile environment. Betsy, who has designed and built houses herself, was the perfect speaker on this issue. Understandingly, the museum had a full house." Carol Pacun, Atwood House Museum, Chatham, MA
