KHS Calendar of Events
May 20, 2017 –
Join us for the second in a series of talks co-sponsored by the Friends of Eric Sloane and the Kent Historical Society. "Geometry": It’s hard to capture the colonial era without knowing the process of acquiring land, buying land and speculating in land, from 1740 on. The cabin focus will be on clearing in woods, the establishment of a farmstead, the types of structures needed, and the significance of proximity to town and meeting house. The session will end with a brief mention of how conventions and early regulations and the geometry of ownership we know.
