Bolling Home Wallpaper Note Cards


Wallpaper. It can be an endless fascination. Sometimes it is really beautiful; at other times it is a marvel to see what people’s taste deems wall worthy. In the case of historic structures, it reminisces nostalgically to time that has passed.

The Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Foundation is immortalizing several decades of wallpaper that still linger within the Museum and the Birthplace of First Lady Mrs. Wilson. Eight details of the historic wallpaper have been showcased on collectible note cards.

Designs feature floral motifs, abstracts, and the famous “Durham’s Restaurant” horse themes. Durham’s Restaurant was located in the Bolling Building that now houses the Museum. On Mrs. Wilson’s last visit to Wytheville in 1960, she dined at Durham’s.

Each card is printed on card stock in four-color, is 5 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches, and includes an envelope. The set of eight note cards is $8.00.
