Revolutionary Shift: Design in the New American Republic
As part of the 250th anniversary celebration of the Powel House, art historian Amy Henderson offers a special tour of this fine example of mid-18th century Georgian architecture. The tour tells the story of the Powels as major characters in a cultural coming-of-age process and highlights the design and dÃ©cor of the house. This is the physical setting in which they entertained, promoted sociability, civility, and conviviality-all of which were seen as the "civilizing process" in the new nation.
Capacity: 25 per tour
