SPOTLIGHT ON SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

A VISIT TO THE HISTORIC ARLINGTON ANTEBELLUM HOME & GARDENS

Immediately following an outstanding lecture featuring transferware in the 19th century American South, we will travel a short four miles by bus to the Arlington Antebellum Home and Gardens. This historic home, built by Judge William S. Mudd just prior to the Civil War, was sited prominently on a hill overlooking the county seat of Jefferson County. The two-story frame structure was built c.1845-1850 and features antebellum-era Greek revival architecture. The Arlington was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and is the only existing antebellum home in Birmingham. The house serves as a decorative arts museum featuring a collection of 19th-century furniture, textiles, silver, and paintings. The bucolic property encompasses six acres with several landscaped gardens. The main garden area features a light-filled Garden Room where attendees will enjoy a catered hot lunch followed by docent-led guided tours of the home and self-guided tours of the gardens, grounds and outbuildings.
 
OUTSTANDING PRIVATE COLLECTION VISIT
 
After a special lunch and tour of the Arlington Antebellum Home and Gardens, meeting attendees will bus to the home of a private collector to view his varied collection of ceramics that includes Historical and Romantic Brown Transferware, Aesthetic Brown Transferware, English White Ironstone, Mulberry Transferware, English Creamware, English Caneware, and a small collection of Southern Primitive Pottery. We will then return to the historic Tutwiler Hotel for a group dinner and free time to socialize.
