PARLOR: This formal room is decorated with period wallpaper and a
patterned reproduction carpet. Arched niches were built by Mr. Alcott to display busts of
his favorite philosophers, Socrates and Plato. Family portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Alcott and
watercolors by May Alcott adorn the walls. On May 23, 1860, Anna Alcott, the model for Meg
March, was married to John Bridge Pratt beneath an arbor in this room.
