This photograph represents a bedroom for guests of older girls in the North Building at the Shawnee Indian Mission in Fairway, Kansas after reconstruction in 1942. The bed portrayed in the photograph is made of maple with remaining samples of paint when the bed was in use. The coverlet on the bed is a reproduction representative of what would have been used while the Mission was in use. The rug under the chair, colored tan and blue, was woven on a loom at the Mission. A shaker rocker is displayed in the corner of the room between the window and door. In 1968, the Shawnee Indian Mission was declared a National Historic Landmark and has since been under the operation of the Kansas Historical Society.
