The Winn House at 57 Summer Street
The woman standing at the center wearing a black dress & hoop skirt is Mabel Hartwell Winn. The one on the left, behind urn, is miss Florence Harris, and the one on the right in a two-toned dress in bustle is Miss Alice Kelsey (she later lived with Mabel Hartwell Winn for a while). The occasion is a party inviting all the people who went on a European tour with Mabel Hartwell Winn in 1930. They often dressed in these costumes & showed a lot of antiques. The dresses are now in the Smithsonian.

  1. Hi. We have owned this house since 1982 and would like to read as much as possible about the history of the house and people . Any idea of where we can look?
    Thank you
