SACO MUSEUM @ 371 MAIN STREET SACO: "At Home in the Victorian Era" The 19th century was a time of great change. Rapid industrialization and the expansion of commerce led to an explosion in the production of consumer goods. At home people surrounded themselves with what seems to be - at least to modern eyes - an extravagant amount of clutter, creating over-filled and rather claustrophobic spaces. Yet to the Victorians these ornamental objects, and their arrangement, had meaning. They were essential components of the ideal refined home, the center of family and cultural life.
