Waiting for Wallpaper
Locust Grove is in a holding pattern right now, waiting for the wallpaper that's on order from Adelphi Paper Hangings, the firm that hand block-prints authentic historic wallpaper patterns. Once the papers arrive, the House will begin to look much more as it did in the Croghans' day. Right now we have bare walls where no bare walls should be!
In preparation for the upcoming Auction, most of the furniture and other items to be sold have been removed from display, and are confined to the Dining Room. This leaves some rooms a bit bare, but our Acquisitions Committee has a wish list of replacement items, and they have begun the search for appropriate new furnishings.
