It is an interesting look into the personalities and interactions of these major mining families.

- Article: “Decorating an Historic Home”, by Laurie Harrison-Dayton. Decorative items and style are being carefully selected to reflect the taste of Arthur D. and Mary Hallock Foote, and to represent the early period in which the house was occupied: 1905-1920.
