Colonial Meeting Houses of New England
Built mostly with tax money, Colonial meeting houses served as both places of worship and places for town meetings, and were the centers of life in colonial New England communities. Using photographs of the few surviving “mint condition” meetinghouses as illustrations, this presentation by photographer Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture. Sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council.
