Macculloch Hall Historical Museum’s founder W. Parsons Todd (1877-1976) avidly collected porcelain, eighteenth and nineteenth-century American and European furniture, silver, glass, and American textiles like coverlets and quilts. Todd acquired more than 450 examples of French, German, English, and Chinese export porcelain, creating a collection that reflects the major European and Asian china manufacturers from 1750 to 1850.

Highlights from the silver collection include the Thomas Nast Presentation Canteen made Eugene Soligny for Tiffany & Co. in 1879; a toast rack made by New York-New Jersey silversmith Cary Dunn (active 1765-1796); and a set of wine coasters, a wine beaker and creamer used in the Madison White House.

Opening hours: Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday 1:00-4:00pm

The Museum is closed Thanksgiving & Following Friday, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day Weekend, Fourth of July, July 3 and 4, Labor Day Weekend.
