Ca. 1800 · Shelburne, Vermont

—Original Owner: Captain Benjamin Harrington · Moved to Museum 1947 —

The earliest portion of this building was constructed by Captain Benjamin Harrington as a distillery, used to provide alcohol for the Captain's nearby inn. Constructed of hand-hewn timbers and rough planks, the building later served as Shelburne's town barn.
Initially used as a storage and workshop space, the Hat and Fragrance building was remodeled as a gallery space. The gallery features temporary quilt exhibitions as well as highlights from the Museum's internationally known permanent collection of more than 500 quilts, coverlets, hatboxes, hooked rugs, and miniature shadow boxes.
