Telling Our Settler’s Tales

Record #:
The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) includes artifacts from seven different states—North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia. The decorative arts refer to objects created for domestic use such as furniture, pottery, and candles. The museum has objects dating from the establishment of Jamestown until the beginning of the Civil War. These pieces of art tell stories of a way of life very different from our own.
