From Parlor to Attic

October 29, 2017, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Have you ever wondered how Durand-Hedden House became Maplewood’s historic house museum? When it was built? Who lived there? Join us for an informal afternoon of exploring Durand-Hedden’s nooks, crannies, and collections. Find answers to these questions and others such as: Did famous artist Asher B. Durand have anything to do with the house? What were the rooms used for? How did that implement work?  Was the house restored and, if so, how did it look before?  Who runs Durand-Hedden and can I be a part of it?
