Roseland Cottage


Over the decades, Roseland Cottage was enlarged and modernized to accommodate an expanding family and changing styles. Children grew, married, and Ellen and Henry welcomed grandchildren. In the 1880s, they redecorated in the new style of the era while retaining many of the original Gothic Revival furnishings. Walls were covered with the new Lincrusta Walton wallcovering, a raised material enhanced with metallic flake paint.
