Connected Farmsteads of NE

KINGSTON —The Kingston Historical Museum, in collaboration with the Kingston Heritage Commission and Historic District Commission, have received a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to present “Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn”. The program will be held on Sat., July 19, at 2:00 p.m. at the Kingston Community Library, 2 Library Lane in Kingston.

Thomas Hubka will lead a public discussion on New England Connected Farms, an architectural style unique to northern New England, showing how farmers converted their typical separate house and barn into connected farmsteads. Incorporating research from his award-winning book, “Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn: The Connected Farm Buildings of New England”, along with the story and architecture of Kingston’s own historic Grace Daley House, Hubka will demonstrate the importance and competitive role this distinctive building style played in 19th and early 20th century New England.

This program is free and open to the public; refreshments prepared in 19th century fashion will be served, with produce generously provided by White Cedar Farm in Kingston.
