A Practical House
Ann Hall’s eye for decorating and the ability of her husband, Roger, to build or fix any piece of furniture enabled the Halls to achieve period perfection in a replica Georgian house on Williamsburg’s York River.
The Legacy of Soap Hollow
A single shop of Amish and Mennonite carpenters in western Pennsylvania created an exuberantly decorated body of furniture. Hundreds of pieces are unaccounted for and await discovery by the savvy collector.
A Work of Art—and Vicki
Art and Vicki Martin bought the shell of a Massachusetts Cape and transformed it into a replica everyman house through the work of their hands with inspiration from nearby Old Sturbridge Village.
A Tale of Three Weavers
Women who wove in Allegany County on the New York frontier did so for pleasure or extra income rather than necessity—contrary to the Colonial Revival myth of a spinning wheel in every home.
Toasting the General at Rider Tavern
Rider Tavern hosted the Marquis de Lafayette when he toured America in 1824. After a recent restoration, the 1799 tavern in Charlton, Massachusetts, reflects that Federal period splendor.
Who’s Who on the Battlefield
To help his soldiers distinguish their officers and regimental comrades, General George Washington suggested colors and insignia for the fledgling Continental Army.
The Life and Times of the Turk
Automata—mechanical men and animals run by springs and gears—both fascinated and frightened the people of the 18th and 19th Centuries. Among them, the chess-playing Turk toured America and (reputedly) beat Benjamin Franklin at chess.
Glorious News from New Orleans
Two hundred years ago Andrew Jackson commanded a force of army, militia, pirates, and free blacks that crushed twice their number of British regulars. Today we celebrate those brave Americans who put aside their social, cultural, and racial differences to defend their country.
