Hi! Millie again! Thanks for coming back to continue with me on my adventures! I would like to introduce you to some of the people in the Mansion's paintings.
I don’t think I have told you about the wonderful paintings at my house. Many of the people who lived here at The White House Farm (a.k.a. Buccleuch Mansion) had paintings done, and those paintings now hang in Buccleuch.
Many of the paintings are of family members of the Scott family, who occupied (lived in) the mansion for over 90 years. Colonel Joseph Warren Scott bought the mansion and grounds in 1821, and furnishings and artifacts of the federal and Victorian era reflect the time period when the Scott family and their descendants lived at Buccleuch.
Colonel Scott’s painting hangs over the mantle in the Victorian parlor; he is the owner who renamed the house from White House Farm to Buccleuch in honor of his Scottish heritage. The home and its parkland were left by his grandson to the city of New Brunswick for use as a public park and to honor his grandfather.
The home was opened as a museum in 1915, and its interior and furnishings are
maintained by the Jersey Blue Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution to
promote the appreciation of the history of New Brunswick and the surrounding
Signing off for now – watch my blog for my next adventure!
