Nellie Curtis Room, Mt. Vernon
Miss Custis room was the one occupied by Eleanor Parke Custis. It is quaintly furnished with a high bed which is reached by carpeted steps. The folding washstand and one of the chairs came from the home of Charles Carroll of Carrollton; and one reflects that these might have belonged to Nellie Custis herself, had she favored the suit of the son of Carroll, who came to Mt. Vernon to seek her hand.
