We have been in the process of restoring two rooms in the 1668 Turner-Ingersoll Mansion, best known as The House of the Seven Gables. While there is still a great amount of work to be done in our “secret room,” the Accounting Room will be getting ready to reopen in early summer.
We partnered with Adelphi Paper Hangings of Sharon Springs, NY. They are one of the leading producers of reproduction wallpaper in the world. Gables staff sent images and samples of one of the original papers found during construction. The beautiful sample was delivered last week and is in final production.
Special wallpaper needs a special paper hanger–and he’s scheduled to start his work in the first week of June. After that, we’ll begin sharing the story of the Accounting Room once again with our visitors and even start test tours of our Dining Room Chamber (a.k.a secret room).
Stay tuned for more details!Tags: dining room chamber, secret room, secret rooms project
