It looks different, doesn’t it! This is the museum’s “children’s bedroom” as it appeared when Donald and Isobel Jones owned the house; the photo is c 1964. The Joneses used this room as their kitchen and the “parent’s bedroom” as their dining room, and had a door cut through the adjoining wall for easier access. The door, of course, was closed up when the house was transformed into a museum.
The following undated photos are also of the children’s room and may be from the early/mid 1970s, shortly after the museum opened to the public.
New artifacts have been added since then, but the stories the room tells, about the lives of children in the 18th century, remain the same.
