Sitting Room

           This room is the upper floor of the original one room log cabin and served as the family residence. The sitting room leads to the main bedroom and to a room furnished as a nursery. An important feature is the original false graining of the wainscot panels in the sitting room and the narrow nursery. In the sitting room the panels resemble a fine burl whereas the panels in the nursery appear to be a dark gray marble. Very few buildings retain this pre-Civil War original artwork.
