If These Walls Could Talk: The Walls and Historic ...

Old Manse Attic

About If These Walls Could Talk: The Walls and Historic Graffiti of the Old Manse

Not all writing in the Old Manse was on paper. The Old Manse contains the writings of dozens of people who shared their stories by writing them on the walls, writings that survive to this day. Explore the Old Manse from the ground floor to the attic and see wallpaper that is 250 years old and graffiti that spans nearly two centuries. By exploring the ways that the inhabitants marked their space, we uncover the stories about the people who lived there and made their mark on American History.
