The papered and bordered wall was an important feature of American interiors during the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. Paper hangings, both imported and of domestic manufacture, were more widely used than many of our restored buildings might lead us to believe. When striving for an accurate restoration, the likelihood that wallpaper may have been used should be recognized and investigated. Wallpaper can contribute positively to the overall success of a restoration.
