The District of Columbia room represents a parlor in a wealthy home, which would have been a rarity in Washington in the early 19th century. More prevalent at this time, along with smaller homes of the middle classes, were the boarding houses for the transient population of politicians, tradesmen, craftsmen and other workers seeking new opportunities in the growing city. The work table shown here was a furniture form used by women while sewing and doing needlework.

The District of Columbia Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the District of Columbia DAR.
