Three single-day trips offered February 22 visit Virginia’s Middle Peninsula, Monticello and other period homes in Albemarle County, Virginia, and Caroline County, Virginia.
Following the Forum, four optional post-conference workshops, each led by Colonial Williamsburg conservators and curators, examine methods of furniture assessment and 18th- and early 19th-century fashion, glass and silver plate.
