Hall

The main room on the first floor was known as the "hall" in the seventeenth century. The hall was an all-purpose room used for cooking, eating, gathering, and sleeping. Halls often held a table, benches, perhaps a few chairs, and chests or cupboards for storage. The best bed was often in this room as well.
