An attached plaque reads: This bedstead and matched dresser were officially designed for and used in the executive mansion at Albany by President of the United States Grover Cleveland when governor of New York State. Used later by Governor David B. Hill. When replaced by the state with a newer style, the then United States Senator David B. Hill purchased them for Wolfert's Roost. By his will they passed to Alton Brooks Parker, ex-Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals who took them to Rosemount, his home at Esopus.
