This year the 3rd annual Collectors’ Day at the Hammond-Harwood House takes you to the table of yesteryear as we explore culinary material culture. Sources like inventories, cookbooks, and letters help us gain an understanding of an early American kitchen and dining room. With these primary documents we can build the story of the objects in the collection or of the previous owner’s interests. We can learn about the construction of the collection objects and about the decorative, the intellectual, and the conventional aspects of each piece. Home of the historic Maryland’s Way Cookbook, the Hammond-Harwood House is proud to offer this day of collections, lectures, and culinary delights.
