Doug Tompkins, American businessman and co-founder of Esprit Clothing, assembled a large collection of Amish quilts including 82 made in Lancaster County between 1880 and 1950. Join us for a special Esprit Quilt showing to view a selection of these iconic quilts and learn more about their history, cultural significance, and the women who made them.

In Collections Up Close programs, LancasterHistory staff and visiting experts highlight documents, photos, and artifacts from LancasterHistory’s vast collections. In a conversational setting, participants will hear the stories of these objects and what they reveal to us about the history of Lancaster County and its place in American history.

“Lancaster County Amish Quilts from the Esprit Quilt Collection,” a Collections Up Close program, takes place on Saturday, March 23 with two presentations, one at 11am and one at 2pm, at LancasterHistory. Tickets are $10/LancasterHistory Members and $15/Non-Members.
