Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn: The Connected Farm Buildings of New England, with author Thomas C. Hubka

May 14 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In celebration of Preservation Month, The Landmark Trust USA is excited to bring noted scholar and vernacular architecture historian Thomas C. Hubka to Southern Vermont to speak on his seminal book on one of Northern New England’s most unique and distinct forms of architecture. The book, which received the Abbot Lowell Cummings Award from the Vernacular Architecture Forum, has been in continuous publication for 40 years and has become a scholarly and popular standard for New England architecture history and cultural studies. It has been widely cited as a model for regional architectural studies combining architectural and social/historical study.

This engaging talk will highlight the four essential components of the stately and beautiful connected farm buildings made by nineteenth-century New Englanders that stand today as a living expression of a rural culture, offering insights into the people who made them and their agricultural way of life. It will feature numerous local examples as well as The Landmark Trust USA’s own Amos Brown House in Whitingham, VT.

Books will be available for purchase to be signed by the author with all proceeds supporting The Landmark Trust USA’s historic preservation work.

This program is supported in part by Vermont Humanities.
