The Kentucky room represents an 1830 to 1840ís parlor. The focal point of the room is the neoclassical sofa made between 1805 and 1815 in New York City, possibly by Duncan Phyfe. It is upholstered in dark blue striped horsehair. Because of the costly imported fabric covering, sofas were very expensive and only wealthy households could afford them. Two 19th-century engravings of birds by John James Audubon (1785-1851), famous for his monumental work Birds of America, decorate the walls. Audubon lived in Kentucky for some years while studying the bird population of that state.
