A Clothes Closet

Picture 56 of 63

This is one of the four clothes closets constructed on the second floor. Built-in closets were unusual in the 18th century, because home owners had to pay a tax based on the number of rooms in the house. Since the doors did not go to the floor, the closets were not considered rooms, and thus not subject to the tax.
