Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 4, 1993):
This was the home of Marie Webster (1859-1956), a master of quilting and a noted advocate of this artistic craft. Webster did not begin quilting until she was 50 years old; her first quilt, based on the traditional Rose of Sharon pattern, displayed Webster's creative talent, resulting in a stunning three-dimensional effect. In 1911 and 1912, Webster's unique designs were featured in Ladies Home Journal. The popularity of these designs led to the publication in 1915 of her book, Quilts: Their History and How to Make Them.
