Why is there a pink house in the middle of Strafford, otherwise full of quintessential white clapboard Vermont houses? Middlebury College art historian Glenn Andres will put Justin Morrill’s house, designed and constructed by the senator, into the context of the Gothic Revival movement in Vermont. What does it say about the man who built this unusually unique house in his home town.
