    Rural Elegance and Urban Splendor

    Explore the eighteenth-century Georgian and neoclassical architectural aspects of the c. 1740 Codman Estate in rural Lincoln, Massachusetts, with its dramatic three-story staircase and ornamental carving, in relation to the 1766-68 Jeremiah Lee Mansion, a late-colonial period townhouse of grand classical design in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Compare both houses' original features, which include exuberant craftsmanship expressed in exquisite interior woodwork.

    Ornament of the colonial period with hints of the neoclassical style flourished in America's earliest years, and eventually became the inspiration for its Colonial Revival during the 1890s redecoration of the Codman House by Ogden Codman Jr. The lecture by former Lee Mansion curator Judy Anderson takes place in the Carriage House. It is followed by an optional tour of the Codman House museum with Anderson and Codman Estate Site Manager Wendy Hubbard.
