Properly Seated: Two Centuries of Chairs in the Ipswich Museum

From the Whipples to the Heards, from the Pilgrim settlement to industrial America, chairs trace the history of domestic life in Ipswich and New England. Drawing upon examples in the Ipswich Museum’s exhibit, John Fiske traces the domestic history of who sat on what and why.

Speaker: John Fiske is co-owner of Fiske & Freeman Antiques, Editor-in-Chief of New England Antiques Journal and Chair of the Ipswich Historical Commission.

Wednesday Evening Lectures are Sponsored by First Ipswich Bank.

Museum members free, non-members $10.
