Early American homes contained space for sleeping, cooking, eating, working, and entertaining. While the size and number of rooms were varied, almost every house was able to accommodate these purposes. Throughout time, the purpose of home spaces, people’s conception of personal space, and the way people slept changed. Come and explore this fascinating exhibit and learn how the bedroom evolved into the type of room we use today. The exhibit " features coverlets from the McCarl Collection, clothing and home accessories from the Kerr Memorial Museum in Oakmont, and artwork from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

The show will run from January 19 to June 16, 2017.
