ESVA's Collections Manager, Stephanie Templin, takes us on a tour of the history of Ker Place, the Federal-period Georgian-style house in Onancock, Virginia that houses the Historical Society of the Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA). Merchant farmer John Shepherd Ker and his family built the house from 1799-1803, which is just before Tudor Place began its construction in 1805. Today, the mansion is home to the Historical Society that captures the stories of notable characters of the Eastern Shore’s past.
Graduate students preparing a dissertation on any area of early American history (up to 1815) are invited to submit proposals for the Colonial Society of Massachusetts’s annual Graduate Student Forum. You will discuss your work with between six and ten peers from other universities, and with the Colonial Society’s members, at our Beacon Hill townhouse at 87 Mount Vernon Street on Friday, June 7, 2019.
