|Harriet Lane's bedroom. I was checking out the wire signaling|
system alongside the bed when my hat must have slipped
from my jacket pocket and fallen on the floor. It was found
later and returned to me outside of "Wheatland".
|A small desk or perhaps a make-up area|
are lit with natural light in the room.
|Harriet Lane's traveling case.|
|The middle bedroom was sparsely|

|James' bed. Sitting on the floor to the left, behind the rope, is what was used for bathing. You stood in the small metal basin and poured water over your head. Thank goodness for modern showers.|
|The small frog doorstop can be seen here.|
|A metal bathtub was only added in 1868 by Harriet Lane.|
|Wash basins stand on a table across from the tub.|
|The final bedroom belonged to Miss Hetty. It was very simple with little furniture.|
|The stairs lead from the second floor to the kitchen.|
|The kitchen with the area were the stove used to be.|
|Another Daguerrotype showing the original stove in the kitchen.|
|This stove, as shown in this Daguerrotype, was installed by the Willsons.|
|The remains of the dumbwaiter can be seen to the left of the photo. It would go from the kitchen in the cellar to the second floor.|
|The lock on the kitchen door used to allow me to leave.|
|Kathy said Good-Bye to me as I left after my tour. Little did she know she would be asked to search for my lost hat and have to return it to me.|
