Wallace Nutting was an American hero, who grew up in poverty without a father. He started his illustrious career as a Congregational minister, but was forced to retire due to ill health. Despite these hardships Wallace came to be known as the "Father of the Colonial Revival Movement."

He is best known for his monumental "Furniture Treasury", which became the Bible for every antique collector and dealer of American furniture. His collection of Pilgrim Century furniture was the finest in the country.

In this book you will learn the many facets of Wallace Nutting:

  • Congregational Minister
  • Photographer of hand-colored platinum prints
  • Author
  • Antique Collector
  • Historic Preservationist

The author includes pictures of Nutting's lovely hand-colored photographs and stories of the colorists who worked for him; details behind his Colonial Chain of Picture Houses; and photographs of his reproduction furniture - treasures for any household.

David McCullough, our beloved American historian, said, "History is a story."
