MAY’S CHAMBER

 

 

The youngest daughter and model for "Amy March" in Little Women was a talented artist in real life as well as in fiction.  Her blue and gray bedroom contains sketches of mythological and biblical figures on the woodwork, walls, and doors, original wallpaper, a vaulted ceiling, and bracketed shelves to hold flower vases.  The room is furnished with a set of painted cottage furniture typical of the mid-19th Century.  There is also a trunk that contains costumes made by the Alcott sisters and worn during performances of their home-made theatricals.
