There were two adjoining bedrooms used by the three Perkins daughters, Minnie, Stella, and Myrtle -  a larger one (in the photo) and a smaller one which now houses a photo collection. Its wallpaper is based on an Arts & Crafts design called “Honeysuckle” which was popular at the turn of the century.
