Newland House Dining Room

 

The room you are looking at is the dining room where the family would gather for their evening meal and to talk over the day's happenings.

The oak table was theirs and the dishes on the table were their everyday dishes that the family used. A piece of their good set of china is on the bottom shelf of the built-in china cabinet to the right.

The picture on the left above is that of William Taylor Newland, the man who built the house. There is also a picture of his wife Mary on the mantle taken in the family's back yard in 1949 on her 90th birthday. But it is difficult to see in this picture.

The fireplace with its green tile work in back is the only other source of heat in the house other then the kitchen stove and made this room very enjoyable during the winter days.

A silver tea and coffe set sits in the dinning room while the 1890s clock keeps the current time.
