Description

Documents from the 17th century, when analyzed along with meetinghouses that retain a trace of their original features, suggest the existence of two particular kinds of dispersal patterns. These patterns offer insight into how architectural innovations were perceived, who perceived them and how they were transmitted. Peter Banes looks at these patterns: the Templeton "run" and the Pomfret "cluster.
