Connecticut boasts some of the oldest and most distinctive architecture in New England, from Colonial churches and Modernist houses to refurbished nineteenth-century factories. The state’s history includes landscapes of small farmsteads, country churches, urban streets, tobacco sheds, quiet maritime villages, and town greens, plus more recent suburbs and corporate headquarters. In his talk on this rich and diverse architectural heritage, Wigren will share highlights from his recently released book Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
Book talks are free for members and $5 for non-members. Space is limited and registration is required. Payment is required with registration.
