In this room you can touch history

Some of these memories awaken in us a past when things were simpler and mother did not lock the doors. The blanket chest here in Yucatan is just a box, but imagine the cool nights when its contents made life possible in the high plateaux or an Appalachian valley The beams are scavenged from the debris left by 18th and 19th century builders of Merida, and one special piece was created by my mother. The found windows date from a period called Art Deco and the blue door from a time referred to as Art Nouveau. The pencil post bed is a Shaker creation.
