About the Dining Room

Lovingly restored with new wallpaper, artwork and furniture, the dining room shows the transition between architecture styles. The Arts & Crafts fireplace brings a touch of modernity to the Victorian style.

Dining Room - Stories From the Past

The dining room was really only used for more formal occasions and celebrations.

Both the Ford family and Miss Myrt remember having their meals more regularly on the lattice screened porch at the back of the house, but as Miss Myrt recalled, Sundays at 257 Rapier were always a little bit different. “We’d open the dining table right up”, she said as her memories drifted back,“and have company and white tablecloths!”

The fireplace in the dining room is one of the only true Arts and Crafts elements in the home, with its square pilasters and archetypal square capitals, simple layered mantel and cream tiled surround.

The floor furnace that has been removed was a favorite spot for children to burn marks in the bottom of their slippers – before they were caught and reprimanded!

The dining room can be separated from the adjoining living room by the six panel 8’ tall double pocket doors - which surprisingly still roll out easily today.
