"A Victorian House in the Millennial Age: Providence's Lippitt House Museum"
Carrie Taylor, Executive Director, Governor Henry Lippitt House Museum
6:00 reception, 6:30 program
$10 members, $15 non-members
The Governor Henry Lippitt House has been a Providence landmark for 150 years. A reflection of the great wealth created from manufacturing in nineteenth-century Providence, the museum represents the epitome of Victorian design and sensibilities. But what relevancy does it have today in our post-industrial age? Lippitt House Museum Executive Director Carrie Taylor will discuss the evolving role of historic house museums as a community resource and the museum's efforts to engage the local community through new program initiatives.
From Trip Advisor:
"We were so glad we took the tour. It was truly a time capsule of Victorian Boston. Everything in the house is original-- that includes the furniture, carpets, wallpaper, bathtub, unique heating system, etc. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy sharing information about the house and family. A fun and unique experience."
