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

Canaan Meeting House, 465 Canaan Street, Canaan, NH
Wednesday July 25, 2018
7 pm

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.
