Ohio Finds! Fascinating Objects from our Past: Wallpaper-covered Box

Compared to the houses of today, Ohio’s early homes were little more than four walls and a fireplace. To stow their belongings, settlers relied on furniture such as chests and cupboards that could survive wagon travel and the migratory habits of a developing nation. Valuables and sentimental treasures made the journey in a small box that could be carried or held on one’s lap. Some boxes were elaborately carved while others were quite simple, but they were always handmade. During the late 1700s, an enterprising New Englander named Hannah Davis started making and selling small and lightweight boxes covered in wallpaper, using her father’s carpentry shop to spin off her own business.
