Join curator Lauren Brincat for a special tour of the Sherwood-Jayne House in Setauket that concentrates on themes explored in our current exhibition, Howard Sherwood: Preserving Long Island, currently on view at our Exhibition Gallery in Cold Spring Harbor.
Howard C. Sherwood (1870–1957), Preservation Long Island’s founder, belonged to an elite group of American decorative arts collectors that emerged during the Colonial Revival, a social and stylistic movement that peaked during the early twentieth century—a time when heightened patriotism combined with immigration, industrialization, and war caused many to fear for America’s heritage and grow nostalgic for an idealized colonial past. Stewarded by Preservation Long Island today, Sherwood’s circa 1730 home and collection provide a window into his life and a time when America relied on its past for inspiration and comfort during an uncertain present.
