Western Travel - Heritage Farmstead Museum (Part Eleven) - Plano, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

Last week we stopped in the upstairs girls' bedroom of the Farrell-Wilson House. Today we're heading back downstairs to the Master Bedroom/Sewing Room.

The doorway leads right into the large wooden bed covered with a beautifully detailed coverlet. In front of the bed is a settee propped with quilt rings/flowers. Next to the bed is a small, wooden baby crib. On the floor rests the chamber pot (for those pre-indoor-restroom days).

A better view of the baby crib which actually looks pretty small and easy to climb out of, so we have to assume toddlers didn't sleep in there. You can also see the long, sheer curtains.

Along the wall is the sewing table complete with bobbins and old-fashioned sewing machine, a pin cushion in the far back, and the woven cane chair.

A closer look at the sewing machine.

And the ever-popular sack dress on a thin-waist mannequin.

A close-up of the dresser top - note the makeup set and matching brush and the assorted hat pins.
