Neat and Tidy: Early American Boxes


Saturday, May 25, 10:00 a.m. - noon

Cogswell's Grant, 60 Spring Street, Essex, Mass.

After thirty years, Nina Fletcher Little's book Neat and Tidy: Boxes and Their Contents Used in Early American Households is still as popular as ever. Often beautifully decorated or made for a specific purpose, boxes offer insights into the lives of everyday people.

Join Site Manager Kristen Weiss for a special tour of Mrs. Little's home, Cogswell's Grant, and see some of the 148 boxes in the collection, many of which are not usually on display.
