Veranda Gets a Facelift

Thanks to a generous donation from the The Charles & Betti Saunders Foundation, the French Legation Museum's Historic House has new veranda furniture for all to enjoy. These high-quality rockers and table are similar in design to the two rockers that Miss Lillie Robertson kept on the veranda (as shown in historical photographs).

The Robertsons were also known to have an old pew from Saint David's Episcopal Church on the veranda. They were given the pew from the original church building, which they helped found in the 1840s, after new pews were aquired for the permanent church.
