This ¾” thick Sarah Jordan Boarding House is hand screen printed on the front with a short description on the back. It is part of a six-piece series called Greenfield Village Christmas Series, created by Cat’s Meow founder, Faline Jones, in her twenty-fourth year of business. This series was introduced in 2006.
Located close to Thomas Edison's Menlo Park Laboratory complex in New Jersey, many of his unmarried employees lived in this boarding house. In December 1879, this building was wired with electric lights, making it one of the first residences in the world to have electric lighting. Henry Ford moved this building to Greenfield Village in 1929.
Look for our trademark black cat, Casper, on every Cat’s Meow. Handcrafted in our Wooster, Ohio workshop.
There are a limited number of this piece available, which is reflected in the price. With your purchase of this building, Faline will donate 10% to Amani Ya Juu, a fair-trade sewing and training program for marginalized women throughout Africa.
