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.
