The Cardinal Gibbons Room

>Check Rates & Availability Online  
The Cardinal Gibbons Room is named for James Gibbons, the Roman Catholic Archbishop who was elevated to the cardinalate in 1886, and the second American to receive that distinction. He used the Mansion as a Catholic retreat for several summers in the late 1890's at the turn of the century. This spacious room has twelve-foot ceilings and is furnished with a stunning, museum quality matching double bed and dresser, which have been in the building since 1872. The rooms matching Greek revival wardrobes predate the house to the 1820's. The bedroom also has one of two original chamber pots on a leather covered "slider" under the bed for decorative function only please. The wallpaper is hand silk-screened by Bradbury and Bradbury, and the carpet is a fine hand woven oriental. This room is on the second floor of the mansion and has a bath with tub and shower, central air conditioning with individual control, a 15-inch flat panel TV, and wireless internet access. Parking is provided with this room. is
