The double doors that open into the reception hall contain the original stained glass. To your left, notice the grand winding staircase. The balustrade is made of cherry. Standing proudly on the newel post is a bronze French cavalier that is original to the house. As you go up the staircase, note the dome. Originally it was stained glass like the doors at the entrance. When the Candees purchased the house in 1905 they replaced the stained glass with leaded glass to allow more light into the house. Like the chapel chairs, the marble top table is original to the Galighers. The marble top table was originally used by Mrs. Galigher in the dining room as a serving piece. The pier mirror was originally on a river boat.
