When we rebuilt the barn we salvaged one original room that opened off of our house next door. This became our 'Rare Books Room' where we have for sale the more valuable and more fragile books in our collection. One wall (the far wall, directly ahead, in the photo) contains a general selection of 19th century and earlier books. More specific collections in this room include: Civil War, Town Histories, European Monarchy, older Technical Books, scarcer Children's Books, Literature and Travel and Adventure. Two tables in the center of the room display maps and various royalty paper items.
Collectors like this room as it is far enough away from the parking lot so they cannot hear their spouses impatiently beeping the horn.
