General Audience

The breakfast room was a place for informal gatherings and meals, yet reflected the elegant style demanded by Ida McFaddin. The room was an addition to the house in 1907, previously part of the wrap-around porch. The home’s architect, John Conrad Mauer, converted a pantry and freight elevator to the butler’s pantry, then incorporated the addition of this room, as well as the utilitarian spaces of a back porch and milk room. The men of the family took their meals here prior to departing for their work on the McFaddin ranch lands. The children were relegated to eating here until they were properly trained to dine with the family in the formal dining room.
