His Majesty's Bed & Breakfast

A look inside our B&B

Helpful hint from early American know-how

When I was at the Historical Society this past weekend, I came across a book “Eric Sloane’s DO a little book of early American know-how”  This book was full of helpful hints on everything from making old time toys to making ginger wine, however this entry I found so funny . . .

“DO take an air bath.  Benjamin Franklin rose each morning at daybreak, got out of bed and passed half an hour in his chamber without any clothes.  This, he said, refreshened as much as a complete bath in water.”

The Queen Elizabeth transformation

This is The Queen Elizabeth Room before & after remodeling. anne before & after

The after photo shows the addition of the on suite bathroom – the bathroom in the hallway was removed along with the closets in the bedrooms to create the on suite bathrooms.

The radiator was removed and replaced with a dresser with a sink.

The walls were papered in a beautiful floral print wallpaper and floor length drapes were hung up.

166 years later …

During my research on the Holbrook’s I came across their marriage license and marriage certificate.

The happy couple were married on July 8th, 1847.  This July it will be 166 years since their wedding.

How do you think we should celebrate?canvas
