The West Virginia room represents early 19th-century parlor. Since rooms were multipurpose during the period, a formal parlor could also serve as a schoolroom. In rural areas, many children were educated at home by a tutor. The room is set to show several young scholars seated ready to read and write during their lessons of mathematics and geography with their tutor. Later they might have a music lesson or listen to the tunes of the barrel organ. The furnishings and decoration of this room reflect the neoclassical style.

The West Virginia Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the West Virginia State Society DAR.
