Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, 75 Eastern Point Blvd, Gloucester, Mass.
Rare among historic house museums, Beauport tells the story of a gay man in the early twentieth century: celebrated interior designer Henry Davis Sleeper. This special tour sheds light on Sleeper’s family and friends and includes readings from books and letters written by Sleeper and his social circle.
After the tour, stay for refreshments on the terrace. Hear a brief talk by Historic New England’s Ken Turino on the challenges historians face uncovering the lives of gay men and women.
