when it wa's used prior to the Junior

is one of the most unusual exhibits in
Detroit's new museum. Whitby Hall,

in the museum now, a wide clap-board

The builder of this house was Colo-
nel James Coultas, merchant, ship-
builder, farmer, .and mill-owner. Colo-
ne Coultas came to Philadelphia from
Yorkshire, Eng'end. He became a
prosperous and influential citizen,
phlanthropist, and patriot.
The windows and the shutters on
the house in the museum are the only
part of the original facade; which was
of brick. But the interior of the two
lower rooms, the fireplace, and the
stairway are just as they were when
the house was first built.
In the museum house are two room's
dcwnstairs and two bedrooms on the
second story. The rooms are furnish-
ed with museum pieces, the two four-
poster beds being of particular charm,

old rose and white material, the other
hung in white lace.
