Decorating the Taft Galleries

Explore the evolution of the history of American interiors throughout the collection galleries. These rooms were decorated to give a dignified background for the Taft collections and present different design elements over a 100-year period, from the initial construction of the Taft historic house in about 1820 through the residency of Charles and Anna Taft in the 1920s.
