Vignette: Osceola Lodge, Charles Hosmer Morse’s Arts and Crafts Study
Charles Hosmer Morse (1833–1921), the industrialist and philanthropist for whom the Museum is named, began wintering in Winter Park in 1883. In 1904, he purchased an 1886 house on Lake Osceola and transformed it over the next decade into a modern residence fitted with the latest and best furnishings in the Arts and Crafts style. This house, known as Osceola Lodge, became his permanent home in 1915. Objects in this vignette are from Morse’s study at Osceola Lodge.
