The youngest Alcott daughter -- and model
for "Amy March" in Little Women -- was a talented artist in real life as well as in fiction. In addition to more traditional sketches and paintings, May's bluish-grey bedroom still contains unique drawings of mythological and biblical figures on the
woodwork, walls, and doors, as well as original wallpaper, a vaulted ceiling, and bracketed shelves to hold flower vases. The
room is furnished with a set of painted cottage furniture typical of the mid-19th
Century. There is also a trunk that contains costumes made by the Alcott sisters which they wore during performances of their home-made theatricals in the Parlor.
