History of New England’s colonial meeting houses explained in Belmont

BELMONT — On September 19 at 7 p.m., Paul Wainwright will discuss “New England’s Colonial Meeting Houses and Their Impact on American Society” at the Corner Meeting House (CMH) in Belmont.

New England’s colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. Built mostly with tax money, they 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, Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.

In colonial New England, there was little distinction between faith and community. Meetinghouses were built by the communities, usually but not always through taxation, and these were used for both religious worship and town business. They were the central focus of the community, and were an important point of contact for all. While most colonial meetinghouses that are still standing have been extensively renovated to meet the needs of their owners and the styles of the times, a few have not been substantially changed at all. 

The presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. The Corner Meeting House is located at the intersection of Fuller and Sargent Streets in the Village of Belmont. For additional information or directions call Chris at 524-8268.
