Architecture of Old Homes to 1870

We come from an area of rich architectural history with streets lined with beautiful homes. In this slide show, Nicholas Langhart will trace the evolution of these homes illustrating the earliest house with their medieval features, transitioning to more typical Colonial houses and to the Georgian style. We’ll look at post Revolutionary homes of the Federal style and move through Greek Revival and variety of Victorian styles. Mr Langhart served as property manager at Historic New England and teaches courses on historic architecture.  Congregational Church at 330 King St. Thursday, Sept 15,  7:30 pm.
