The Lee Mansion Under Wraps: Photographs by Rick Ashley


These photos were taken last winter, when Ashley came to the Lee Mansion for a different project. While he was there, he was struck by the stark beauty of the Mansion. The resulting photos are the result of Ashley’s artistic skill and perception. His work provides a behind the scenes glimpse of the mansion when it is at rest. The generosity of Rick Ashley is greatly appreciated. He took the photographs, printed and donated them to the Marblehead Museum.


The Lee Mansion Under Wraps exhibit is the start of a year-long celebration, in 2018, of the 250th anniversary of the completion of the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, built in 1768. The Lee Mansion is nationally recognized as one of the fines Georgian colonial homes ever built. It is a Marblehead treasure, and will be featured throughout the coming year with exhibits, lectures and programs. The exhibit will be on display through January 15, 2018.
