Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building
Constructed on-site: 1967
This Greek Revival-styled structure was designed to resemble an Orwell, Vermont, farmhouse admired by Museum founder Electra Webb (1888-1960). The interior recreates six rooms from Electra and J. Watson Webb's 1930s Park Avenue, New York City, apartment; their arrangements of furniture and decorative and fine arts have been preserved largely intact.
On display in the Museum's European art collection, including works by Old Masters, Édouard Manet, and Impressionists Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Mary Cassatt. The building also exhibits art from the American West, as well as family photographs, portraits, and memorabilia.
Erected by the Shelburne Museum.
