KHS Calendar of Events
June 3, 2017 –
Join us for the final talk in the series co-sponsored by the Friends of Eric Sloane and the Kent Historical Society. "Built Form": Building the initial cabin led to a bigger and more significant house. We’ll examine the difference between vernacular building and domestic architecture, and how houses and their siting are status symbols. The symbolic significance of Noah Blake’s cabin will provoke some reflection, too. The session ends with thoughts about how the first efforts on our frontier affected land use patterns that still persist, and the value we put on historical retention.
