description:

At first glance this room does not at all appear to be the same office on the second floor of Woodburn House; with the exception of the desk it looks nothing like this today (2015). However after close examination of two other images and an on-site examination of the physical transom between the office and the adjoining room to the east, one can see that this is the same room. Compare this image with images P0022434 and P0035416. Although one of the images shows a lamp on the desk, close examination of that image shows a cord leading from the lamp to the ceiling. Today, there is a hanging fixture over the desk.

At some point during one of the renovations of Woodburn House the book shelves were removed, the door to the left of the fireplace was moved closer to the fireplace, and a cabinet was installed where the curtains are located at right.
