The Wisconsin Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Wisconsin Society DAR.

The Wisconsin room represents a “hall” or multi-purpose living space in a New England house between 1680 and 1720. Throughout the day, the hall was used as a kitchen, dining room, sitting room or bedroom. Activities were often centered around the fireplace, needed for heat during the winter as well as for light, cooking, and domestic chores year-round. The number of specialized furnishings, like the carved chest, suggests a well-to-do family of this period.
