Sutter-Meyer House

Period Room at the Farmhouse

The Sutter-Meyer Farmhouse was occupied for over 100 years, but we do not know what the interior looked like during most of that time. Sadly, no original objects were left in the home when the last residents moved out. So the Sutter-Meyer Society decided to create a room that would reflect what the home’s parlor might have looked like circa the 1890s. This “period room” (pictured) is a re-creation of that time. 

A parlor in the 1890s would be a space where a large family might gather to relax at the end of a hard day's work. There was no television, no radio, no computers. Families would visit, make their own music, play games, or do sewing. These activities are represented in the room.
