The Blanton-Hanbury Room

The Blanton-Hanbury Room is named after the couple who originally owned the massive bedroom set. Mr. Blanton, who was from the Farmville area, traveled to the 1900 Centennial Fair in Philadelphia where he purchased this set for his bride-to-be, Miss Hanbury.

 

This furniture remained in their family for many years; however, due to its size it became difficult to move into their modern-day sized homes. The family donated this queen bedroom set in the Blanton and Hanbury names and asked that we create a museum quality Victorian bedroom.

 

The bedroom contains hand-painted wallpaper, a one-of-a-kind carpet hand-made for us in France using the small looms typical of the Victorian period, wood grained doors, marbleized mantle, and hand-made window treatments. This room also features a private bath.

Grant Room

Located on the second floor this room is referred to as The Grant Room because General Ulysses S. Grant used the furniture when he stayed at the old Price Edward Hotel on his way through Farmville to Appomattox.

 

 The room features a hand carved lacquered antique queen bed, table, dresser set that is intricately laced with gold paint.

 

It is believed that General Grant wrote the first request for surrender to General Robert E. Lee on one of the two tables located in the room. The furniture set was donated by Harrier Booker Lamb ‘28. This room offers a private bath.

Travel Tips

If you’re mulling taking a vacation this year, you’re in luck: I just came back from The New Times Travel Show and will share the best advice I heard on how to save money and where to go.

“This year, the whole world is open to you,” said Pauline Frommer, co-president and editorial director of Frommer Media. “The dollar is so strong, it’s whupping pretty much every currency.” “Nomadic Matt” Kepnes told me that “Australia, Great Britain, Canada, South Africa and India are really affordable right now.”

And “airfares to Europe haven’t been lower in years,” said Jason Cochran, editor-in-chief of Frommers.com. The reason: growing competition with cut-rate airlines such as Norwegian, WOW, XL and Thomas Cook. Fares to Asia are down 25% from a year ago in many cases, added Frommer. Kepnes told me: “Norwegian and WOW offer great deals now.” (WOW recently rolled out a $69 one-way fare from California to Europe.)

But that doesn’t mean every flight, cruise, train trip, hotel or B&B is a bargain. In fact, Frommer, Cochran and Reid Bramblett spent most of their talks telling prospective travelers how not to overpay in 2017.

Jarman Room

This is the only bedroom located on the first floor and is the most handicap accessible with a private bathroom.

Dr. Joseph L. Jarman served as president of the university and lived in the house from 1902-1946.

The room features an elegant, hand carved, mahogany furniture set that is crowned by the canopied full bed. On the wall of the room is a painting of Mrs. Jarman, the wife of the former college president resident of the house. This room also has a private bath.
