Americana Week 2017

Americana Week - Baker house hall way party, lighter - option 2[1]

Guests at the Americana Week kick-off party at the George F. Baker House in New York City.

Classical American Homes was pleased to welcome friends visiting for the Winter Antiques Show at the George F. Baker house on Tuesday, January 17.   This annual gathering is hosted along with Colonial Williamsburg, Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, and Winterthur, and we were pleased to see so many friendly faces join us this year!  Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in the private residence of Richard H. Jenrette, which he graciously opened for the evening.

Margize Howell and Peter Kenny, along with Bill Reiss of Colonial Williamsburg, Frank Vagnone of Old Salem/MESDA, and Dave Roselle of Winterthur took a moment to address the guests and welcome them to the 5th Anniversary of this event.  We look forward to continuing this tradition each January and we encourage our friends to participate in this fun and informative week in NYC!
