Wallace Nutting and Tourism Gallery Talk

Thursday, July 23, 2015

5:30 p.m.

While leisure travel among the middle class had gradually increased since the Civil War, Wallace Nutting took advantage of the new automobile culture to create his Chain of Colonial Picture Houses to provide therapeutic and educational vacation experiences.

Sandra Rux, curator of “Wallace Nutting and the Wentworth-Gardner House—100 Years,” will discuss the impact Wallace Nutting had on tourism in New England and Portsmouth.

The talk is free and will be held at the Wentworth-Gardner House.
