ABOUT THE PROJECT
Founded in 1975 and receiving its NYS Charter as a historic house museum in 1984, the 1890 House Museum boasts an impressive collection of photographs. These photographs document the lives of the Wickwire family and their friends from the late 19th century through the 20th century. When inventor & industrialist Chester F. Wickwire moved into his home on June 1, 1890, he photographed each room as it was. These photographs have now been digitally preserved by Roger Theise from Roger Williams Photography. Some of these interior photos have never been on view to the public before.
Purchase an interior photograph that will be displayed within its room at the 1890 House Museum. Your name will be displayed below the photograph as its sponsor.
There are just 14 opportunities to make a lasting impact for these important images.
