Well curated collection. We took the textiles tour this trip. Attended a presentation our first night in their auditorium that left much to be desired: 'Secrets of CW' or such... Skip it. Too $$$ and boring! (And I love history BTW.)

Besides all the era specific artwork, you will find Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Martha Washington, Le Marquis du Lafayette and more. Living history is the best!!

After visiting Bassett Hall, I had a new appreciation for Abby's art choices. I especially enjoyed her large dispay of weather vanes! She had a very unique selection of art.
