The furniture collection is mostly on exhibit in the Atwood House that was built c. 1752. The objects are arranged in a series of period rooms in an effort to show how people in a seacoast community like Chatham might have lived from the mid 18th century to the early 20th century. In addition to furniture, there is also a good representation of early ironware and decorative accessories.
