Kelton House Farm: Explore 17th century Furnishings, Architecture and Gardens

Kelton House Farm: Celebrating 17th Century American Furnishings, Architecture and Gardens.  Attorney and Historic Preservationist Joseph Gromacki will talk about his classic Georgian home.  Built in the mid 18th century in New England, Kelton House was dismantled in the mid-20th century, restored and moved to its current location in Wisconsin.


Furnished with 17th and 18th century furniture, textiles, ceramics, metals and lighting, Kelton reflects the aesthetic and utilitarian assemblage of a lived in home.

Mr. Gromacki will also address the historic gardens, apiaries, heritage livestock breeds and heirloom crops on the farm.

Doors open at 7:15 with an informal and conversational mini exhibition of members' related items.

    I'm still trying to catch my breath. What an over the top collection! And he has it all documented! ANDS he just lives there and gives huge dinner parties straight from his farm.
    It was a joy to see a private collector with so much passion about his collection and so much generosity with his information and anecdotes. So glad I went!

    Wow. This is going to be really cool. Many people are focused on the American Revolution and the 18th century, but there was a long and intriguing colonial history before then.
    2014 minus 1776 = 248 years
    1776 minus 1492 = 284 years
    Lots to learn tomorrow night!

    Joe Gromacki will have something to interest you whether you enjoy architecture, furniture, gardens, metalwork, ceramics, textiles and anything relating to the daily running of an 18th century home.
