“Every Article… suitable for this Country”: Furnishing Early Williamsburg

Coming in 2020
Will be on view in the June Stedman Hennage Gallery
It has been generously funded by Don and Elaine Bogus.

This exhibition will draw on examples of original paintings, furniture, silver, iron, ceramics, maps, clothing, tools, and other goods actually used by residents of Williamsburg and environs during the decades leading up to the Revolution. The exhibition will complement and enhance every guest’s visit to the Historic Area, exploring the lives and stories of real people from the past through these remarkable survivals.
