the pursuit of leisure at Historic New England’s Phillips House Museum. Much of
our programming will look at how the family played, travelled, collected, and
enjoyed the company of a large number of friends and family after they moved
into 34 Chestnut Street in September of 1912. A variety of programs including
walking tours, lectures, and social events will share the story of fun in the
early twentieth century.
