Daybed


Title
Daybed
Description
This daybed in the Stone daughters' bedchamber shows where the daughters' nurse might have slept. The mattress on this bed is supported by wood slats instead of ropes. The enslaved woman who worked as the nurse at Hope would have had a great responsibility in minding and taking care of five girls. Female slaves often started training as a nurse or house servant as early as six years old. The accompanying video describes the bed's use. Date approximated.
