The Alabama Room represents a parlor in a wealthy Alabama house in the mid 19th century. By the 1830s most Alabama houses had only one or two multi-functional rooms. However for those wealthy cotton planters and entrepreneurs who could afford one, the parlor became an important place to show off wealth, refinement, and knowledge of fashion. The astral lamp, which draws your eye to the center table in the room, was a great improvement over candles. With its cylindrical wick it could cast much brighter light than previously possible.

The Alabama Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Alabama Society DAR in honor of Carroll Campbell Strickland.
