CT Architecture: Stories of 100 Places|
This fall, the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation will unveil Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places, the first comprehensive illustrated book about the state's rich and diverse architectural heritage. We'll have the book in our MUSEUM SHOP, and we'll host Christopher Wigren at the Custom House on Sunday, November 11, at 2 PM.
Christopher Wigren is the Trust's deputy director. The book introduces readers to 100 places across Connecticut, ranging from Colonial churches and Modernist houses to 19th-century factories, tobacco sheds, town greens, and corporate headquarters. (Harbor and Ledge Lighthouses are on pages 157-158, and the Custom House on 255-256.) The text draws on architectural survey and National and State Register programs administered by the SHPO to emphasize the importance of the built environment for our sense of place. Space is limited. Q&A will follow the talk. Book signing and purchase will be available. $12, $6 NLMS members and youth to age 18.
Please register online or call 860-447-2501.
