Moving chronologically through the stunning Georgian and Federal periods, this guided tour focuses on 20 of Winterthur's most representative rooms and reveals the history and changing styles of millwork throughout the era. Each room's discussion features a unique blend of color photography, a breakdown of the architectural details, and commentary on each element.
