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

August 14, 2016

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.

Hosted by: Newbury Historical Society.

Funded project of New Hampshire Humanities.  New Hampshire Humanities is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
