Beltane at the Brownlee House

Samuel and Catherine Brownlee have returned home in celebration of Beltane on this May 1 with the help of local artist, Jessica Burkley. Ms. Burkley used small portraits obtained from the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to create a pair of stylized paintings for Catherine and Samuel. The portraits serve as a wonderful addition to the Brownlee House Heritage Rooms, which have been curated to tell the story of how wealthy Scottish immigrants, like the Brownlee Family, might have lived on the 19th century American frontier. 

Learn more about the history and details of the portraits in the video below.
