|Now part of the first floor restaurant, this room has a sink, which was installed by John Steinbeck's father because he was not the first father with a wife and three daughters to note the women of the house dominated the bathroom.|
|Phyllis Johnson, a contemporary|
artist, painted this portrait
of John Steinbeck
especially for The Steinbeck House.
