Ladies Guest Bedroom

This is the only room that is largely furnished with pieces that were not owned by the Douglass’s. However, the portrait of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, that hung over the fireplace did belong to Douglass. Stanton, a friend of Douglass, was a women’s rights advocate who fought with Douglass for women’s suffrage. Guests such as Jane Pitts (Helen’s mother), Eva Pitts (Helen’s sister) and Hallie Q. Brown (elocutionist, educator, and civil rights advocate) are all likely to have stayed in this room while visiting.
