There are two staircases in the Hope mansion between the first and second floors. The secondary staircase, or what's known as the winding stairs, has wedged shapes stairs to fashion turns. This allows the staircase to fit in a tight space and includes a small closet in the turn of the stairs so no space is wasted. This would have been the route Stone's slaves would have used to move from floor to floor. It would also have been likely used by members of the Stone family and business associates. The staircase and its construction are described in more detail in the accompanying video. Date approximated.
