Mary and Markie's Bedchamber

Mary and Markie's Room

NPS

Mary, the eldest Lee daughter, often shared this room with her cousin Markie Williams, who was a frequent house guest. Mary's independent nature and strong personality won her a private room because none of her younger sisters wanted to live in the same room as she did. But like all other family members, Mary was expected to share her room with relatives and friends visiting Arlington House when asked to do so.
