The Connecticut River Valley in the mid-eighteenth century was home to a unique regional culture which set itself apart from its surrounding neighbors.  Heavily shaped by leaders of social and economic standing, this culture produced a provincial style readily noticeable in the architecture and furniture of the region and now on display at Historic Deerfield.  This talk will focus on the characteristics and design elements unique to Connecticut River Valley architecture, examining them both in a regional context and their relationship to design practices elsewhere in New England at this time.
