Ca. 1804 · Columbus, New York · Moved to Museum: 1953

—Original Owner: Melicu and Louisa Tuttle —

The Stencil House is typical of small side-gabled homes common in New York and New England. The floor plan groups four rooms around a central chimney. A central front door, flanked by pairs of double-hung windows, opens into a small entrance hall. The rare, painted wall stencils in the entrance, parlor, and dining room were likely done by an itinerant artist between 1820 and 1830.
Today, the house displays stenciled walls, painted and vernacular furniture, and decorative arts. Similar to the installation in Prentis House, the Stencil House exhibit reflects efforts to create a particular Colonial Revival aesthetic in period rooms.
Prentis and Stencil Houses are open for guided tours only.
