Does anyone know why historic, pre 1900's home plans have bedrooms with doors connecting them to another bedroom? My only thought was for young kids and their parents but I have seen some plans where every bedroom connects to another bedroom even though there is a hall door as well. Any ideas?

ESCAPE in the event of Fire.

Our house originally had all the bedrooms connected. Then later (early 1900s), some walls were moved and there was a central hallway between them. The connecting doors were later removed. 

I wonder if when they are both present, its just that no one spent time to remove the old doors. Either way, I also wonder what was behind connecting all the bedrooms vs accessory hallway.
