Enter Virtual Experience for ""Entrance Hall

The entrance hall was the formal point of entry for guests of the McFaddin and Ward families. It provided guests with a first impression of the family’s status. A butler or other member of the household staff greeted guests, serving as a buffer to the family. They then took their coats, handbags, or other personal items to a closet behind the main staircase for safe keeping. The guests were then directed to the reception area as directed by the family. Museum guests are surprised to learn that the McFaddin-Ward collection contains about 35,000 objects in the collection, most belonging to the family who lived in this home. Nearly 4,000 objects are on display, rotating to reflect the changing seasons and preferences demonstrated by the family during their almost eight decades at 1906 McFaddin Avenue.
