Formal Parlor:

   Immediately to your left off the foyer is the formal parlor, this is the room that would have been kept closed during the week and strictly off limits to the children in the family.  On Sundays, the 10' tall pocket doors would be opened and guests would be welcomed in and entertained in this room.  Today the room is furnished with a mix of Victorian era antiques, including an 1810 Viner clock from England, an 1819 mantel clock, a walnut secretary, a Tiffany style stained glass panel over the fireplace, stained glass lamps, etc.

Dining Room:

   Adjacent to the Formal parlor is the dining room.  You are immediately confronted by the beautitul brass chandelier that features both electric and gas fixtures.  It is furnished with an antique walnut table that seats 12 and antique walnut chairs.  The side board dates from the late 1800's and once belonged to the Tanner family in Virginia City. 

Main Kitchen:

   The main kitchen boasts not only a red enameled 'AGA' stove from England with six burners and four ovens, but also a functioning wood cookstove that is used in the cooler months of the year to cook with, as well as provide heat to the rest of the house (in addition to the forced air furnaces).

Butler's Pantry:

   The Butler's pantry is actually a complete kitchen unto itself, but smaller.  It boasts a 'mini AGA' (only two ovens and four burners), A Shaw's 1897 porcelain sink, two retro refrigerators and cabinets to store all of the household china and stem ware.

Family Parlor:

   This is the room that the family would have used during the week when company was not around.  The family would have retired to this room in the evening to play parlor games, sew and mend clothes, read, and converse about their days activity.  Today we use it for much the same, especially as a meeting place for guests to mingle with other guests and share their experiences.
