The Righteous Bedstead

I stayed in a downstairs room at the Inn on Poplar Hill called the "Library Room." It does have books and bookshelves, wrought in mahogany-toned wood, but its main feature is the elaborate carved wooden bedstead. This originally adorned the bed of a judge, who must have been a righteous man. The bedstead is a dark red color, and about five feet tall. The whole room's decor befits a 19th century gentleman, so I was an honorary gentleman during the days I spent there.
