The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts has an impressive collection of furniture, textiles, paintings and much more. But on a recent visit from Popular Woodworking we were looking for secrets.

Finding these compartments is lots of fun and takes a practiced eye to recognize the signs that indicate a hidden compartment. Clever locking mechanisms and secrets hidden within secrets are the norm. Join us for a look at Furniture Secrets at MESDA.
