dc.descriptionOne of the upstairs bedrooms without a sink; pitcher and wash basin; Two historic houses are part of the Farnsworth Art Museum. The 1850 Farnsworth Homestead was the home of Lucy Farnsworth, the museum's original benefactor and daughter of William Farnsworth (1815-1876). It is now part of the main museum campus. The architectural style of the house and outbuildings is Greek Revival but the interior is decorated in high Victorian style. The elegant structure has survived intact, with virtually no adaptation. Minimal electrical systems were added for safety purposes, but all the original heating and plumbing is still in place, including what was probably the first indoor bathroom with a flush toilet in the city. The Homestead was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Source: Farnsworth Museum [website]; http://farnsworthmuseum.org/ (accessed 7/12/2012)en_US
