General Audience

This formal gathering space was one of many rooms adjacent to the formal entryway where the family visited with guests. This room was the setting for both celebratory and solemn family gatherings. Mamie McFaddin Ward married Carroll Ward here in 1919. This room was a place of mourning as it hosted the funerals for multiple family members, including a wake for Mamie McFaddin-Ward. The room is decorated in the French Rococo style, popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
