The Residents of Kelmscott House

From the inventor of the electric telegraph to a one hundred-year-old actress: the remarkable residents of William Morris’s Kelmscott House

In celebration of London Open House this month, our September talk will highlight the fascinating people who lived at Kelmscott House, linking with objects from the Society’s collection. Although William Morris was the most famous person to live at Kelmscott House, we’ll also cover the absorbing histories of the other inhabitants who called Kelmscott House ‘home’.

Please join us as we discover the intriguing stories behind the residents of this famous riverside property.
