At Home in Germantown, 1750-1900
The exhibition highlights the Society’s vast collection of period domestic objects, including furniture, silver, pottery, porcelain, tableware, kitchenware, needlework, and children’s toys. It provides a vivid picture of what it was like to live in Germantown years ago and how people worked, relaxed and entertained in the home. Period settings re-create the rooms in Germantown homes of the 18th and 19th centuries, including a Colonial keeping room and parlor, a Federal dining room, and a Victorian reception room.
