The Bair Room
The Bair Room is named for Robert C. Bair, Dr. Henry Smyser’s son-in-law who, with his wife Ella, inherited the Smyser-Bair house and lived out his life in it. Robert Bair was a lawyer who taught Sunday School in the church across the parking lot. His Sunday school lesson books remain on display in the house, and some of them include his portrait, signature, notes, and handwritten lists of his students. The room itself is decorated with soft, comforting wallpaper and includes three tall windows looking down from the third floor.
