For this project John Waters reviewed and cataloged over 2,000 items donated to Glessner House Museum by the Glessner family, relating to the family’s estate, The Rocks, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Items in this collection include over 500 design drawings, ranging from architectural drawings of the estate’s buildings by architects such as Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge and Herman Von Holst, to landscape drawings by two generations of the Frederick Law Olmsted family.
