Bulloch Hall


Sandra and I went to the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild quilt show at Bulloch Hall in Roswell, Ga.  Bulloch Hall is the childhood home of Theodore Roosevelt’s Mother.  I enjoy touring historic homes, so really enjoyed the trip.


Front of house and the formal garden.  Didn’t see any vegetable garden. 


The old well and service area.





The kitchen area in the basement.  The 4th picture is the root cellar. They did their cooking in the fireplace,


The 1st picture is the dining room.


Front stairs to the second floor.  The narrow stairs goes to the 1st landing and the wider stairs go to the 2nd floor.  The back stairs also went to the 1st landing.


The bedrooms.  I like that narrow child's bed.  It is long enough to sleep an older child.  There sure isn’t any room to turn over in it.




Attic stairs and attic.  It is not a good picture of the 1st quilt 2nd row, but I thought the colors were interesting.  Got some inspiration for colors from several of the quilts.


We did a house block Saturday Sampler a couple of years ago.  I liked this quilt for setting ideas.  Needless to say, I haven’t done anything with my blocks yet.
