"The Assembly Room was very lofty, the arched ceiling running up under the mansard roof. There was a music balcony at the east end, and around the sides of the room ran a broad and comfortable divan, with red moreen cushions, the seat itself lifting on hinges, in sections of about four feet, the box beneath furnishing a neat and convenient receptacle for the head dress, shawls and wraps, the latter usually a cloak, the most favored being the red broadcloth. In this manner the modern cloakroom was dispensed with."
White, Alain Campbell, The History of the Town of Litchfield, Connecticut, 1720-1920 (1920) p.122.
