This week’s “Photo of the Week” shows the sitting room at Waldemere. The sitting room was probably one of the busiest rooms in the house, as Barnum was constantly inviting guests to come and visit. Visitors were such a priority that the property included two guest cottages, so that guests could have their own place to stay. Some of most famous visitors were newspaper editor and politician, Horace Greeley and renowned author Mark Twain.
The Photo of the Week highlights pictures from The Barnum Museum’s collection. These pictures are posted on our website at: www.barnummuseumexhibitions.org, along with a brief description of the person, place or thing within the picture. The Photo of the Week can also be found on Facebook.
