Tour of Yale Workshop immediately following
Dr. Leroy Milton Yale Jr. (1841-1906) was born on Martha’s Vineyard and lived in New York City, but his summer home was in Quissett, where he created his fascinating workshop. This workshop now sits on the grounds of the Woods Hole Historical Museum. It was the place where he pursued his many hobbies, including photography, etching, woodworking, fly-tying, and writing. As part of Art Week, Woods Hole Historical Museum volunteer Laura Reckford will take us on a virtual and then a literal tour of the Workshop, pointing out some of the treasures from the Museum’s permanent collection and giving insight into one summer resident’s life in Quissett more than 100 years ago.
