UPPER LEVEL
LYDIE MARLAND'S BEDROOM
Dainty carved flowers and rich imported limewood walls give a flavor of splendor to the "Louis XV" style bedroom suite of Mrs. Marland. The exquisite wood work highlights hand carved borders and panels which meet at rounded corners. Even the air vents are decorated with tiny carved flowers. The beautiful fireplace is carved from pink Italian imported marble and is the smallest and daintiest of the seven fireplaces in the mansion.
The bed is Mrs. Marland's original bed, which she returned for display here, complete with the handmade lace covering.
 
This photograph, that rests atop the fireplace mantle, is said to have been Lydie's favorite of Mr. Marland. That, by the way, is what she always called him in public - Mr. Marland - never anything more familiar.
