Historic New England presents Program in New England Studies
Historic New England presents Program in New England Studies, an intensive week-long exploration of New England decorative arts and architecture from Monday, June 19 to Saturday, June 24, 2017.

At Program in New England Studies you’ll learn about New England culture from the seventeenth century to the Colonial Revival through artifacts and architecture. 

Travel throughout New England to hear lectures and presentations by some of the country’s leading experts in regional history, architecture, preservation, and decorative arts. There are workshops, visits to Historic New England properties, other museums, and private homes and collections. Learn about Historic New England’s work to transform the Eustis Estate in Milton, Mass., into a museum and study center; and enjoy a champagne reception on the terrace of Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House on Gloucester Harbor. The program is a chance to meet people from all over the country who want to learn more about New England and to hear from the connoisseurs who want to share information about their area of expertise. It is perfect for museum professionals, graduate students, owners of historic houses, collectors, and anyone with a passion for New England history.
