Back Parlor

Although used by the Carrolls in much the same way a family room is used today, the Back Parlor is quite formal in appearance. Microscopic paint analysis conducted during the restoration of the house in the 1980s revealed evidence of adhesive on the walls, documenting the use of wallpaper. The black painted and gilt armchair, on loan from the collection of the Maryland Historical Society, is the only piece of furniture that has survived with a history of original use at Homewood.
