Turner-Ingersoll Mansion Garret, c.1910

Description

The attic garret in the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion has long been interpreted as “Clifford’s Room” from the novel The House of the Seven Gables. In this photograph we see the room just after the restoration of the house pn 1909. To make the space appear more as a living space, a false fireplace was added, as well as a bed and dresser. Note the portrait of Horace Connolly Ingersoll on the wall, one of the few images we have of Susanna Ingersoll’s heir.
