Although domestic servants made everyday life in grand homes possible, their identities and roles within the household have long been hidden. This lecture by museum historian Jennifer Pustz illustrates the diversity of domestic service in New England over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by focusing on Castle Tucker, Roseland Cottage, and the Codman Estate. Archival materials illustrate the lives of servants and relationships with their employers. Part two of a four-part series of programs celebrating Women’s History Month at the Otis House.
