The whole house, including each guest room, is furnished in period, but with modern facilities (think microwave oven & low-flush toilet).
Along with other mansions on Main Avenue, some of which have survived (see our video about the Corbett House just down the street), the home of the Julius Kruttschnitt family is on the street that the less fortunate called “Snob Hollow”.
