Colonial Revival art in all forms had a home in Deerfield, Massachusetts, in the early 1900s. The Society of Deerfield Industries, an organization of local artisans dedicated to reviving traditional handicrafts, held a yearly exhibition and sale. The show was spread throughout the town's main street, filling the 18th- and 19th-century houses. The exhibition included painting, photography, and a variety of traditional crafts including weaving, needlework and basketry, all of which were useful in decorating an early 20th century house in the latest style.
