Carpentry Shop Museum

Let your imagination wander back in time to the late 19th century, when proud craftsmen built homes from native woods using only hand tools. The Waterhouse Carpentry Shop, constructed around 1883, was the site of William Waterhouse’s woodworking and construction business. Restored through the efforts of the Art & History Museums Maitland, the City of Maitland, and the State of Florida, this working museum offers a permanent collection of woodworking tools and materials commonly used at the turn-of-the twentieth century, including some of those owned by Mr. Waterhouse himself!
