Dining Room

Well known for their elaborate dinner parties, the dining room has hosted many guests over its years. Comfortably seating 12, but with a few adjustments could seat up to 20. The walls are a rare Cuban Mahogany and the ornate "House Of Cards" style ceiling is unique for its bold colors. The family had many priceless sets of china and hand-cut crystal. Of all the gorgeous light fixtures in the mansion, you won't find anything special in this room. Merrette insisted to dine by candlelight until her death. Today, some of her original china is on display at the Minneapolis Institue of Art.
