Join us for a lecture by Marlene Heck, Dartmouth professor of Art History, to learn about what our houses can tell us about Norwich's past. This lecture kicks off our summer celebration of Norwich's streets. This talk will provide insight into many of the homes that are on this year's June 23 House and Garden Tour.
Dr. Marlene Heck's work focuses on the architectural and social history of America in the age of
Jefferson. She is particularly interested in vernacular building traditions
and the way 18th-century building design was altered to respond to new social
and cultural practices adopted during the early national period.
