Join us for a book talk with Christopher Wigren, architectural historian and Deputy Director of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. 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, as well as 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 sale at the event.
