First Fridays: Wallpaper

The Plymouth Antiquarian Society is proud to participate in First Fridays Plymouth, a new initiative highlighting arts and culture in the Plymouth Bay Cultural District. On the first Friday of every month (May through October) from 5 to 8 PM, the Hedge House Museum will be open for free mini tours. Each month we will select a theme and curate our display to showcase different types of art in the Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s collections.

This month we will be highlighting the wonderful wallpapers in the Hedge House. As part of the major restoration completed in 2007, period patterns were recreated using traditional techniques. See the colors and patterns used by residents in Plymouth to decorate their homes in the early 19th century.

Entry into the Hedge House for this special opening will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the small size of the rooms, visitors may be asked to wait outside until space is available for them to enter. Thank you in advance for your patience! Non-vaccinated guests are advised to wear masks.
