Please join us at 7:00 pm on 24 March for this free virtual lecture. Presented by Abby Baer, executive director of the Demuth Foundation, this program’s focus is on the Demuth family and their long connections to Lancaster through business and art and their legacy.
The Demuth tobacco shop was established in 1770 by Moravian businessman Christopher Demuth. Generations of the Demuth family owned the shop until its closure in 2010. At that time, it was the oldest tobacco shop in the United States. Charles Demuth [1883-1935] chose art over tobacco and earned national and international acclaim for his paintings. Today, the Demuth tobacco shop, Charles Demuth’s studio, are open to the public and managed by the Demuth Foundation in downtown Lancaster.
