Thomas-Murray Suite

This spacious second-floor suite includes a canopied four-poster queen-size bed, large living room with fireplace and a combination shower-tub bath. The room is named for Capt. Thomas Thomas and wife Martha Dudley Murray. Capt. Thomas was a successful merchant with his own sailing vessels. It is believed the couple had sixteen children; only five survived—Isabella, Charles, Samuel, Thomas Murray and William Alonzo Thomas. Purchased from William Fisher Bell in 1858, the home was occupied by the Thomas family for over 100 years. In 1900, Thomas descendants helped fund the purchase of Piver’s Island and the deed was transferred to the government for the establishment of a US Fish Commission Marine Laboratory, one of the first in the country.
