Hay Bedroom Restoration

Restoration of the Master Bedroom to the Hay period of 1956-1962 was completed in 2015, using original inventories and photographs from the Hay family in the archives of The Georgia Trust and consultant studies. Nearly all of the furnishings and objects visible were in the room during the Hay period and have been restored, including the gilt mirror over the mantle which was acquired from the original Johnston-Felton family by the Hays. The television is a vintage example purchased to match a reference to one in this space in P. L. Hay’s 1959 estate inventory.
