Another of our premier rooms, the Blue Room was the warmest of the original bedrooms. Its large fireplace heated that room, an adjacent bedroom (there used to be doors between the bedrooms), and the hallway. The warm Blue Room is where anyone needing special attention stayed. It’s where Minnie gave birth to my Mother Elizabeth, at the remarkable age of 43. It’s where Elizabeth convalesced after developing a lung abscess from the crude tonsillectomy practices of the day, and it’s where I was born after Elizabeth recovered and married Walter Ludlam.
The present fireplace is more for looks than function, but it still reminds me of the days when the Blue Room was my room, and was still heated by that original fireplace. Now the room has a beautiful queen-size bed with antique headboard and footboard, and with modern mattress and linens replacing the original feather bedding. The old wardrobe, originally from Ireland, serves for hanging clothes.
The Blue Room also has a new, modern bathroom with an oversize whirlpool tub.
