The Period Room
Welcome to the

Period Room


Floor Plan

In this room, located on the second floor of the house, Robert Green Ingersoll was born. It has been furnished with furniture typical of the period. The sparse and mismatched furniture suggests a reality that a frontier minister's family probably would not have owned a matched set of furniture for any specific room.

This view shows a table, rope bed with "cannonball" style posts, and chamber pots.
