Contact the Painted Rooms Committee

If you know of a painted room that should be documented or you own a property that houses a painted room we would like to hear from you.

Heritage Trust is interested in a variety of historical painted interiors and surfaces. A painted interior may consist of a painted wall mural, a painted border, stencil work and/or decoratively painted ceilings and floors. Ornately painted furniture, fire place mantels and faux finishes, such as marbleization and faux wood grain, are also of interest to us.

The modest home hosts two elaborately painted rooms, the front left parlour and the dinning room. The dining room ceiling and walls were painted in 1971 and the parlour was painted approximately two years later.
