Cozy Gatherings

The Evergreens library was a more informal space in the home, used for entertaining the family’s “inner circle” of close family and friends, while the parlor across the hall was meant for larger gatherings and more formal entertainment. Imagine this room filled with candlelight, books and laughter, as Austin, Sue, and their children would connect with close friends and sisters Emily and Lavinia, visiting from next door.

Richly furnished library, with Moroccan carpets, floor globe, and ornately carved library table
