The central panel likely depicts the Norwichtown green, in Norwich, Connecticut. Four buildings correspond to historic structures lining the green (clockwise from left): the one-story Lathrop schoolhouse (built 1782); the First Congregational Church’s fifth meeting house (built 1801), the old Norwich Courthouse (built in 1762), and a substantial dwelling house, identified as a tavern by the sign hanging from a corner post
Elizabeth was nine years old when she stitched her sampler. She used mainly cross stitch, some cross over one, chain stitch and lazy daisy stitches.
