This is a view of the Smith Family Farm House. An 1840 house that is part of a beautiful installation at the Atlanta History Center.
If you look to the left side of the porch, you will notice a small room with a window and a door. This room was known as the "Traveler's Room". Its door did not connect to the rest of the house so as not to disturb the family. And it was always unlocked! Travelers who were coming through late at night could stop and stay.
Imagine that, A free room; prime real estate in a house whose family members might have shared a single room. Yet, they had an empty unlocked room for the wayfarer to use, free of charge!
If you ever want to make America great, "Again", bring back these values. Ideals that were so ingrained, they manifested in the architecture of our very homes.
Back in the day, when we built, we built free, Wayfarer Rooms, not walls and detention centers!!
