About the Lumber Rooms

These two storerooms are located in the north and south additions made to the Mansion in the mid-1770s. Tradition held that Martha Washington occupied the south Lumber Room after George's death. However, the 1799 inventory indicates that Mrs. Washington's room was heated by a stove and architectural investigations clearly show that this room never had a stove. The only of these two Lumber Rooms to have had one is the room now identified as her bedchamber.
