( 7 ) North Parlour: The large mahogany drop leaf table and the smaller drop leaf sewing table are attributed to the well known local cabinet maker Thomas Nisbet. These pieces have acanthus leaf carvings, spiral reeding, rosettes and brass animal claw feet resting on caster. The gilt mirror with a plain cornice and ebonized reeding above the large table is of the Sheraton period.

The wallpaper in these rooms is a reproduction of a pattern popular in the pre-revolutionary colonies from the Schuyler House National Historic Park in Saratog, New York. The brocade drapes are reproductions of those popular at the time of the War of Independence.
