Mary Randolph Carter: "Growing up, I lived in a big house on Monument Avenue, in Richmond, Virginia, right under the statue of Robert E. Lee.

But what has stayed with me all of my life is loving the families that brought you along and having an appreciation for what a photo album or an old picture means."

It is also the room prepared for William Low when he arrived for the mid-November 1886 burial of his father and his marriage to Juliette Gordon, founder of the girl scouts.
