Library

A room that defines itself, the library was probably added with the first phase of the dining room. A retreat for the men the walls were covered with an elaborate wood paneling treatment with “coupons” that hold it in place with no visible nails. An intricately carved wooden crown molding added even more distinction. Constructed at a time when the building complex had a coal fired boiler to deliver steam heat through radiators, the craftsmanship of the builders was also demonstrated by hiding the radiators behind a wood and iron screen. Before the addition of the Solarium and upstairs bedrooms, the west door would have opened into a garden area with a clear view to the Front Range.
