Winter Fair Masters Class History Seminar: John Holland - Salem's Third Master Potter

Thursday, December 26, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM James A. Gray, Jr. Auditorium, Old Salem Visitor Center

Although his management of the congregation pottery was criticized and he was accused of showing “little zeal” for the business, recent scholarship suggests a more complex story. This lecture combines historical and archaeological evidence to reexamine the legacy of John F. Holland: Salem’s third master potter.
