In 2020, Farnsworth House, a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, celebrates Edith Farnsworth Reconsidered, a yearlong focus on the life and times of Dr. Edith Farnsworth. The focal exhibition of the year, Edith Farnsworth’s Country House, a circa 1955 refurnishing, includes a new tour and partner exhibits that all focus on the untold story of the remarkable woman.
"Unfortunately, just as we were readying to open to the public, the call came to lock the gates due to the COVID-19 pandemic," the release stated. "Until we are able to begin a phased public reopening, followers are urged to visit the Farnsworth House Facebook and Instagram (@farnsworthhouse) channels for access to new, interesting content."
