Lunch & Learn: New England’s Colonial Meetinghouses
October 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
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. This program is presented by People’s United Bank and made possible through a Humanities To Go grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
