Live blogging: In Their Own Words- Henry Sleeper and Halfdan Hanson Build Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House. Cape Ann Museum and Historic New England special tour!
We are on this incredible tour at Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House. Descendants of both Sleeper and Hanson are here! This special programming duet was brought together by two Gloucester institutions, the Cape Ann Museum in collaboration with Historic New England’s Beauport property, inspired by the Cape Ann Museum’s Design/Build exhibition.
Lorna Condon, senior curator of Historic New England’s Library and Archives, is leading the tour. Martha Van Koevering is the Site Manager for the Beauport Sleeper-McCann House
