Join Curator Gregory Weidman for an in-depth look at the detective work employed in uncovering the past at Hampton National Historic Site.

Choice selections of antique pieces from Hampton’s collection and seldom seen furnishing materials will be showcased in a special presentation on March 8 at 2:00 p.m. at the Hampton Orangery at Hampton National Historic Site.

Discover how fragments from the past, historic images, and surviving documents provide needed clues to furnish period rooms authentically, how museum professionals date collections to a certain era, and how nuances of construction leave telltale marks of the craftspeople who made them.
