Re-imagining Project

Students from the New York School of Interior Design will return in 2020 for the fifth year to decorate rooms in the NHA 1800 House, as they have over the past four years in the Oldest House. Directed by Ellen Fisher – Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean, the students develop narratives about their design concepts and rethink modern life in a historic property. The students research the island’s history and culture, and create their vision for you to experience.
