The Woodworkers of Windsor:

A Community of Craftsmen, 1635-1715



September 15, 2003 Ė August 14, 2004

North Gallery



This landmark exhibition of Windsorís Puritan-era furniture illustrates the early settlement period of Connecticutís first English town.  Thirteen joined and carved chests and boxes, made of unseasoned, native oak, reveal many of the successes and challenges of early settlement and bring to light the critical cooperative networks on which Windsorís English immigrants depended.  The exhibition explores several communities of Windsor woodworkers, how furniture pieces were designed and constructed, and how they functioned in the home.
