The Front Parlor: Davies Manor, Bartlett, TN (2 of 6)

Prior to the inventions of the twentieth century, the front parlor was the place for friends and neighbors to gather and share a song, especially during the winter months.  In less formal households, the front porch served the same purpose.

The following pictures are from the small but inviting front parlor of Davies Manor, near Bartlett, TN.  When entering from the main hall, your eyes are immediately drawn to the left by this massive piano.
