Gore Place (Waltham, Massachusetts)

The home of federal-era Governor Christopher Gore had us install a multicolor blockprint recreated by Bruce Fine from a document found in the house. (See photo below)

In October 1997, WRNA installed blockprinted paper and borders from Mauny of France in the upstairs oval parlor. The wallpaper was handtrimmed by WRNA and the curatorial staff to effect an early 19th century "look". The house was built by Christopher Gore, Governor of Massachusetts, in 1806.

Contract amount: $5,519.40
