Overview and metadata sections

Since 1930, Woodford Mansion has operated as a house museum dedicated to displaying 18th century American and colonial decorative arts. Summaries of the daily activities of Woodford Mansion were recorded by trustees, guides, and volunteers throughout much of the mansion's history in the form of the daily logs, ledgers and calendars found in this collection.

Records in this collection date from 1930, the the first year Woodford became a museum, through 2019. Record types include daily logs, ledgers, and calendars that offer glimpses into the daily activities of Woodford. This includes visitor data, visitor comments, event information, and more. The collection is comprised of 34 records and covers the trusteeships of Daniel T.V. Huntoon, Jr., John P.B. Sinkler, and Lawrence H. Berger.

Records in this collection were left to Woodford Mansion by former trustees Daniel T.V. Huntoon, Jr. (1930-1943), John P.B. Sinkler (1943-1958), and Larry Berger (1986-2018), as well as site manager Martha Moffat (1991-2018). The records were created by former trustees, house managers, and Woodford volunteers/guides.
