Kirk Family Heirloom Chair

This 19th Century Parlor Chair, with original intricate needlepoint seating, was part of original Rose Hill furniture belonging to Dr. John & Caroline Kirk. Evelyn Kirk Gill, 91 years old at her death in 2012, donated the chair in her will to the Rose Hill collection of original Kirk memorabilia. It was part of the Kirk family heirloom collection inherited by her late husband (father of Bill & Kathryn Kirk) who was a direct descendant of Dr. John & Caroline Kirk - original owners of Rose Hill Plantation.
