​FS Connects Presents: Philadelphia Woodwork and Furniture in Context at Stenton
Tuesday, October 3rd
1:00-2:00 PM
on Zoom
 (pre-registration required)

 

Wood­worker and Furni­ture Conser­va­tor Christo­pher Storb along with Stenton Curator Laura Keim will take you on a virtual visual tour and discus­sion through some of the rooms inside Stenton, a remark­able c.1730 early Geor­gian gentleman’s house built as the plan­ta­tion seat of Philadelphia’s Quaker Logan family. Storb and Keim will discuss the 1720s house construc­tion and will consider some of the furni­ture with eyes on form, mate­ri­als, and construction details.

The National Society of The Colo­nial Dames of America in the Common­wealth of Penn­syl­va­nia (NSCDA/PA) has stew­arded Stenton as a historic house museum since 1899. Many objects and furnish­ings on exhibit have Logan family ownership histories.
