Newland House Sleeping Porch

 

The upstairs' sleeping porch was built along with the sunroom downstairs in 1915 and it was in this room that the older sisters lived. There were 3 to 4 sisters living here in this room.

The quilt on the brass bed on the left was made by a Newland daughter. When the house is closed to the public, both beds are covered by sheets to prevent the sunlight from damaging these valuable quilts, as shown on the right.

On a clear day you can see for miles from the east window and from the south window you are able make out the blue Pacific Ocean if it's a real clear day.

On really cold nights the Newland girls could hear the roar of the surf all the way up to the house.
