New England's Colonial Meetinghouses and Their Impact on American Society

Presenter: Paul Wainwright

New England's colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. Built mostly with tax money, they 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, Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.


Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!

This event was originally scheduled for April 3rd.
