Each year we encounter visitors in the Museum Store who ask about the quotes that are featured on the walls of the Nathaniel Hawthorne birth house. These quotes were taken from various works by Hawthorne and hand-painted on the walls throughout the house. This year we are proud to offer selected quotes from the works of Hawthorne on wooden plaques.
These pieces of artwork will complement our existing products which feature his quotes, including ceramic mugs, book marks, and greeting cards. The plaques are available for purchase in a variety of sizes, and are painted in the same colors as the wood work of the birth house.
The quotes are in a script font that reflects the authors time period, and are a great gift for admirers of Hawthorne and the values that he expresses in them.
