Enjoy a colorful tour of historic wallpaper with Peggy Wishart, who has worked to catalogue Historic New England’s wallpaper collection. Take a crash course in New England wallpaper evolution: learn how to tell the difference between block-printed paper and later machine prints, or a twentieth-century reproduction wallpaper and its nineteenth-century original. A wallpaper-focused tour of Sarah Orne Jewett House Museum follows the presentation.
Historic New England's extensive wallpaper collection contains more than 6,000 individual samples of wallpaper, historic photographs of wallpaper in situ, and ephemera dealing with the wallpaper industry. Explore the collection at WallpaperHistory.org.
