About the Bathroom
An old storage area and walkthrough pantry was transformed into the new main bathroom – with its original clawfoot tub.
The clawfoot tub is one of the things that was on Esther’s must-have list for a bathroom in her Southern home – and the one at 257 didn’t disappoint. Although neglected after many years use, it will be resurfaced and replaced in the new family bathroom.

Bathroom - Stories From the Past
Now sadly lost to history, there used to be a white wicker chair in the bathroom.
Not only was this used by the Morgan’s house help when keeping an eye on the children or when she had a few minutes rest between duties, it was also used as the family’s “naughty chair”.
Miss Myrt remembered being sent to sit on the white wicker chair in the bathroom when she had misbehaved (which was quite often according to Miss Myrt) – like sticking her tongue out at Grandma Morgan!
