The James K. Polk Memorial Association invites its members to the annual Spring Luncheon and business meeting, held…
Join us for this month’s POLK’S AMERICA lecture series and podcast show, featuring the Polk Home & Museum’s own curator, Candice Roland Candeto, presenting “The Natchez Furniture Shop of Robert Stewart.”
Born within a year of James K. Polk, Robert Stewart’s life and career parallels the 11th President’s in many ways. Stewart’s business in antebellum Natchez, Mississippi, has much to teach us about craft, labor, business, and society in Polk’s America, as well as the decorative arts of the too-often-forgotten Gulf South.
