Elizabethan Living Room (Oak Room)
This was formerly Mrs. Yount's living room. The walls are hand carved oak. The plastered ceiling is a reproduction of an Elizabethan Room in an English country home. The room is 30 x 60 feet and originally had a green wall-to-wall seamless carpet woven in Scotland. A carpet of this width was not woven in America at that time. The massive chandelier and sconces are solid bronze. Hanging on the north wall is a Flemish Renaissance Tapestry of the sixteenth century titled "Alexander's Conquerors. Etched in the mantel are the words "East, West, Home's Best".
