Judy Anderson is a social & cultural historian with a focus on architecture, daily life, and women’s & family history.

She was Curator of Marblehead’s outstanding Jeremiah Lee Mansion for a decade and worked with it for 16 years.


She has written a book about the house and its magnificent original English hand-painted wallpaper from the 1760s. The rare 18th-century murals are the only ones in the world like them still in place ~ covering the walls in several rooms and in the mansion's soaring stair-hall. Only one other suite of similar English wallpapers survives ~ in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. For information about the book, see www.MarbleheadArchitecture.com

She gives popular talks about the Mansion, Marblehead’s early architecture & history, decorative arts and historic interiors.
