Weir Farm National Historic Site

Weir Farm was home to three generations of American artists. The site includes the home and studios of American Impressionist Julian Alden Weir and sculptor Mahonri Young. The park’s extensive collection includes art, furniture, tools, and artist’s supplies. Many of these original artifacts are now on display in the recreated Young Studio.

Harpers Ferry Center installed historic furnishings in the Young Studio in July 2012. Curators at HFC worked closely with Weir Farm National Historic Site’s staff to reproduce original Young paintings, sculpture and etchings. Conservators from HFC and the Northeast Region’s Museum Services Center treated original sculpture, artist’s props, easels, furniture, and Young’s etching press, now returned to the historic studio.
