The Sitting Room by Virginia N. Fred

Currently unavailable for purchase

Planetary Court-1904
The seven women who comprised the Planetary Chamber, the governing council of the Koreshan Unity, lived in the well-designed, three story house. Each person had a separate room, which could be entered from the central stairway hall, or form the outside porches.
Most of the furnishings in the Planetary Court were brought to the Settlement from Chicago. Day -to-day business of the Settlement was conducted by the Sisters of the Planetary Court.

Photo taken in Estero. Florida
