Connecting to Collections: The Art of Dining


It wasn’t until the late 18th century that dining rooms began appearing in American homes, and with their advent came a need for new types of furniture. Examine John Jay’s 1790s dining table and some of the many other objects used by him while taking meals. Regular admission fees. Advance purchase of tickets is suggested as space is limited.
