The Illinois Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Illinois State Organization DAR.

The Illinois room represents a 1840s “best” bedchamber in a wealthy household where the husband and wife slept. The best bedchamber was not just a place for sleeping, as women spent much time in the bedchamber birthing, nursing and caring for children. Therefore the best bedchamber was set up in the most comfortable manner with tables and chairs for doing work and socializing.
