The various rooms offer beds of king, queen, full and twin sizes. Four poster Jenny Lind spool and canopy beds are complimented by 1900?s cranberry glass ceiling light fixture and 1880?s armoire. A chesser, a half dresser-half chest, was originally used in the chauffeur?s quarters. Mother never threw anything away. When we needed an item for one of the rooms, we just looked in the attic and there it was.

Purchased by the Parker family in 1944, this is our family home. Original antiques from the family and previous owners of the home adorn the rooms.
