The Hart Room is the earliest period room in the American Wing. Its architectural elements are typical of seventeenth-century New England interiors, and the furnishings are fine examples of late seventeenth-century Massachusetts-made furniture, a melding of late Renaissance and Mannerist designs from northern Europe and England and craft practices brought to the colonies by English joiners and turners.
The room is from the home of Samuel (1645–1725) and Sarah Norton (1647–1727) Hart of Ipswich, Massachusetts.
