Treasures from the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum

Sometimes treasures go unnoticed, even in museums.

Among the hundreds of objects in the musuem’s historic houses are some which, given the chance, can tell fascinating stories. Placing these pieces in a gallery setting gives us an opportunity to literally see them in a different light.

Removed from the busy visual context of an historic house setting—or even from behind-the-scenes storage—such objects are able to stand on their own and in the process tell their own stories.

So enjoy a feast for the eyes and the imagination!
