Newland House Sunroom

 

The room that you are looking at is the sunroom and was not part of the original 1898 house. This was added in 1915 when one of Mary Newland's daughters became ill after an operation in the house by the local doctor and the doctor advised the family that a warm room was needed to bring her health back and so this room was built.

When this room was constructed, wicker and Mission oak furniture were popular and this is the way the historical society has restored this room. At one time Mary Newland collected native American handicrafts and the house was full of these pieces including over 200 baskets of which a few are shown in this room. Some of the others are on loan to Bowers Museum in Santa Ana for display. Note the white wicker rocker in the center of the picture and the Mission oak lamp on the left.

At the desk in the bottom picture is where Mary Newland kept the books for the ranch and her ledger is shown open and waiting for the next entry.
