Looks like a beautiful home - why is it famous and who are these women?

Charles Lapham built the house in Thomasville after the great Chicago fire.  Every room in the house has multiple exits, in case of fire.  Thomasville was a winter resort for wealthy Northerners, as this was the end of the railroad (Florida was still swampland).   Here's a link for more information on the house:  http://gastateparks.org/LaphamPatterson
