History: A National Historic Landmark, the Baum-Longworth-Taft House was built in 1820 for Martin Baum.

Later residents included Nicholas Longvvorth and David Sinton. It served as the home of Anna Sinton and Charles Phelps Taft from their marriage in 1873 until their deaths in 1931 and 1929.

When their house became a museum in 1932, it was restored and decorated in the style of the Federal period for the display of their fine art collection.

Highlights & Collections:

Museum collections include European master paintings, such as works by Rembrandt, Hals, Gainsborough, Sargent, Ruisdael, Turner and Corot; Chinese ceramics primarily porcelains of the Kangxi reign; and Europeanl decorative arts, featuring an extensive collection of French Renaissance Limoges enamels and seventeenth-eighteenth century watches. The Baum-Longworth-Taft House is an excellent example of American Palladian architecture, and the room settings are enhanced by choice selections of early-nineteenth-century New York furniture.
