THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF BOSTON SHOW HOUSE SHINES SPOTLIGHT ON THE BEST IN NEW ENGLAND DESIGN
William Flagg Homer, the uncle of revered American artist Winslow Homer, purchased the estate in 1836 for $5,000. The property and its surroundings provided inspiration to Winslow Homer and was featured in some of his bestknown paintings, including the “Croquet” series and Boys in a Pasture. How fitting that Boston’s brightest talents in design were able to present their work in such a memorable setting and help the Junior League continue their commitment to the Wellness of Girls, a community service project focused on developing tomorrow’s healthy and confident women leaders.
