PETERBOROUGHWainwright to talk about meetinghouses

Paul Wainwright to talk about New England's Colonial meetinghouses and their impact on American society Thursday, May 25, 6:30 p.m. at Peterborough Town Library, 2 Concord St.

New England's Colonial meetinghouses were built mostly with tax money, and 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, Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.

Wainwright worked for many years at Bell Labs, with photography being an avocation. Since 2001, he has pursued his love of photography full-time and is especially drawn to photographing historic structures.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
