Originally known to the Segerstrom Family as the Sewing Room, this add-on room is designed to create a suite for four with either the Melvin Belli Room, or the Wendell Willkie Room, both of which adjoin with private doorways. It has no bathroom of its own. The Helen Keller Room features a comfortable Queen bed with rose stenciling and has windows facing West through a majestic Heritage Oak tree just outside. It has a closet and plush loveseat to add storage space and additional seating to the rooms it connects with.
