Henry Knox Domestic God – Whaat? – Lecture
If you scroll through Pinterest or Instagram, you might presume that women make 2022 home design choices. It may be true today, but it was not true in the post-Revolutionary War era. Women had little input, if any, when prominent historic homes rose in the new country. The founding fathers built and created interiors to reflect their personal interests and status in the world.
Noted Architectural Designer and Design Historian, Annie Coggan will share how Montpelier, Mount Vernon, Monticello, were designed, and furnished. Some like, Henry, Franklin and Washington were quite persnickety. Each had his own influences and added his own flair. Join us for a smart, amusing and insightful talk.
