General Audience

This utilitarian space was for family and staff access only. It connects the second floor to the third floor by way of a functional staircase, unlike the grand staircase connecting the first floor to second. The lighting in the corner is perfect for household tasks such as sewing. It’s also where the emergency fire abatement equipment was placed by the original occupants, the Averills. The McFaddins maintained strong familial ties with their extended family in West Virginia, represented by the collection of professional captured photographs in this space.
