Adult Lecture Series Salt Box Talks Revisited “Keeping up with the Stuarts”

August 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us as we travel through the English furniture styles that were popular during the Stuart period from the beginning of the reign of James I in 1603 to the end of Queen Anne’s reign in 1714. We will examine the sturdy oak construction of the Jacobean style that was prevalent from James I to Charles I; the austere designs of the Puritans; the influence of the French and Dutch in the Carolean style while Charles II was in exile; the graceful and decorative styles of furniture in the William and Mary period and finally the mastery of technique during the reign of Queen Anne. Mr. Patterson’s collection boasts many fine examples of furniture that covers the Stuart period.


This program is designed for those who would like to discover and appreciate North Hills Museum and the surrounding community. The session will include a power-point presentation, a guided tour of the collection where applicable and refreshments. Each lecture is $6.00 per person. Registration required, call 902-532-2168 or email
