Adjoining his bedroom, renowned Connecticut stage actor William Gillette’s master bath is a classic example of early 20th-century New England-style (i.e. – plain) convenience.

Digital oil painting from an original photograph shot at Gillette’s former home, which he named ‘Seventh Sister’ for its location atop the southernmost hill in a chain known as ‘The Seven Sisters’; the Sisters overlook the Connecticut River from East Haddam. Today, Seventh Sister and its 184-acre grounds – including the remains of a miniature railroad and a large koi pond – comprise a state park known as Gillette Castle.
