Photo of the Dominy Shop in Winterthur's gallery.

The Dominy collections at Winterthur tell the story of three generations of craftsmen in East Hampton, New York between 1762 and 1852. The Dominy family made and repaired furniture, clocks, watches, and a wide variety of farm and household equipment for their family and neighbors. This extraordinary collection of tools and furniture, demonstrate craftwork and community at a time when Americans were finding their places as citizens of the new republic and participants in a young, dynamic, industrializing economy.
