William was the eldest of the Gooding children. The family emigrated from Tiverton, England and settled in Paw Paw, Michigan. While his siblings eventually found their way to Idaho and began establishing themselves professionally and politically, William remained back east where, we are told, we was a "wealthy farmer". The first of the two rooms provides a quilt-covered daybed, a comfy reading chair, antique tables and lamps. But, its true focal point is an early gentlemen’s wardrobe trunk. It is in impeccable original condition and is the inspiration for this suite’s nautical theme. In the next room is a double bed, also covered with a hand-made quilt. It is flanked by matching side tables. A wonderful antique lady’s vanity with a large round mirror and its matching stool anchor the room’s furnishings. Paintings and whimsical knick-knacks echo the theme.
