Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Collection of Wynne Home Materials contains programs, invitations, booklets, guides, newspaper articles and clippings, and notes.  The Wynne home was built in the 19th century, originally a small cottage presented as a gift to newlyweds Gustavus Adair Wynne and Samuella Gibbs by Sanford and Sallie Gibbs, Samuella’s uncle and aunt.  Over the years, the home grew larger as the Wynne family grew.  The home passed down through the family until it came into the possession of sisters Samuella Palmer and Ruth Hollinshead.  After Mrs. Hollinshead passed away, the home was donated to the City of Huntsville to be used as a Cultural Arts Center.
