In this article author Nancy Hatch presents a geographical and historical account of the town of Buckfield, Oxford County; Maine, that elaborates a model of center-village development constructed by Joseph Wood in his The New England Village, and a model of connected farm buildings, as constructed by Thomas Hubka in his Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn. Hatch uses these models to explain how Buckfield responded to the growth of inter-regional agricultural markets in the mid-nineteenth century and to new architectural styles that appeared on the national scene in these decades. Ms. Hatch was a student at the University of Southern Maine at Lewiston-Auburn College when she wrote this paper under the direction of Professor Barry Rodrigue.
