Hickory Hill Plantation

Original Furniture
Lincoln Room Chairs
    Like the bed, these two chairs represent part of the original Crenshaw furniture purchased from the Lawler family descendents. Notice that there is a "male" and a "female" chair, with one being wider than the other. The upholstery is believed to be original, but as can be seen in the picture to the right, the back of the "male" chair has been replaced with fabric from an old ribbon-type quilt. The picture below shows the detail from the top of the "female" chair.
