Preservation helps reveal the past

An interpretive program connecting the Robert Toombs House to the 18th century will be presented at the Historic Site by the Toombs House Volunteers a week from this Saturday.

“Revealing Time Through Preservation” is the title of the presentation scheduled from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, February 20.

As a cultural resource, the 19-room, 7,129-square-foot antebellum mansion represents evidence of growth through Federal, Greek Revival, and Victorian styles of architecture. The original outbuildings, heirloom plants and trees, and original 19th-century furnishings are evidence of the era the house represents.

“Join us to learn about the role preservation continues to play in revealing the past,” Marcia Campbell, site curator said.

An intriguing exhibit and a taste of historic foods will be enjoyable additions for visitors while experiencing the Robert Toombs House presentation.
