In the late 19th century, many Welsh men and women made their way to America, some of them to Perry, Iowa. Often they worked the mines or started in farming. Known for their music, the Welsh brought with them their songs, their textile arts, and their love of their land, all celebrated in this room.
In this room you'll find items that were adored by the Welsh people. Some of these items include antique china pieces and a book collection with poetry written by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Due to the fact that the mining industry played such vital role in the economy of Wales, a lamp in the room is fashioned of a brass coal miner's lamp. Most of the fabrics in the room are also woven from unique Welsh fabric weaves including the pillows, blankets, curtains, and the wing chair and ottoman.
