Elegant Dining

The dining area of the Hughes house is roomy and formal. A red tablecloth and Christmas decorations adorn the table, while a jolly Santa Claus stands atop the china hutch. Ornately carved furniture fills the room with elegance and style. How interesting it would be to go back in time and observe the family and their friends at a Sunday dinner here.

Not shown is a men's parlor that was well-used and furnished sparsely. In it, bookwork and reading took place. A large wood-burning fireplace is featured and made this the warmest room in the house.
