The Black House Museum will reopen for the 2024 season in early summer
The Black House, a registered national historic landmark, was built based on a design from Asher Benjamin’s architectural book, “The American Builder’s Companion.”
Construction began in 1824 and the Black family moved in on November 7, 1827.
The collection reflects furnishings from three generations of the Black family and include different styles of European and American furniture, portraits and miniatures, books, souvenirs from trips abroad, sleighs and carriages, and an assortment of silver, china, and glassware.
All items in the collection are directly connected to the family or workers of Woodlawn.
