Voices From the Back Stairs: Domestic Staff in New England
Although domestic servants made everyday life in grand homes possible, their identities and roles within the household have long been hidden. This lecture will illustrate the diversity of domestic service in New England over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by focusing on three Historic New England properties. Period domestic manuals, ephemera, and other general material will also bring the lives of servants and relationships with their employers to the foreground.
