Visually explore the tremendous legacy of New Hampshire's architecture from the Victorian period (1820 - 1914). This program looks at exuberant Victorian-era architecture across the state in houses, hotels, mills, city halls, courthouses, and churches, with references to gardens, furniture, and other elements of the built environment.

Richard Guy Wilson explores elements of visual literacy and points out how architecture can reflect the cultural and civic values of its time and place.
