The question most often asked of us is “What's happening to the Telling Mansion?” Our president recently toured the facility and observed a partial but major renovation of the living room and annex transforming that area into the future home of the Museum of American Porcelain Art (MAPA). The museum is expected to open to the public later in 2017 or early 2018. While porcelain art continues to be produced in many parts of the world, this museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of American Porcelain Art which has all but disappeared here in the United States. MAPA will have the most extensive collection of American porcelains, archives of significant achievements and a reference library of porcelain second to none in the world. You can visit their recently constructed website at http://AmericanPorcelainArt.org
Our museum is in the Caretaker’s cottage of that estate and is in the process of moving to the mansion’s Gatehouse.
