This building was designed to complement neighboring historic structures. The main block, flanked by matched wings, echoes the symmetry and scale of nearby Dorset House, and the brick façade reflects the construction materials of the Schoolhouse and Meeting House.

Webb Gallery is the showcase for the Museum's collection of American art, primarily 19th-century portraits, prints, landscapes, and genre scenes, and serves as a gallery for special exhibitions.
