First Impressions

When visitors entered The Evergreens, the sight they were greeted with was meant to create a lasting impression. The entry hall exemplifies fashionable late Victorian tastes—note the dark red wallpaper, heavily gilded frames, and the luxury of ornate objects d’art. Built a generation apart and reflecting changing tastes over the course of the 19th century, the difference between the two Dickinson homes is striking.

Entry hall with staircase, finished in rich reds and woods. There is a calling card receiver & round gilt mirror.
