Upon entering the Mansion, guests encounter a breathtaking marble foyer; the grand sweeping staircase takes you to the second floor. In the center of the suite of rooms is The Salon decorated with crystal chandeliers, antique gilt-framed mirrors (circa 1780) and a magnificent 15-foot high Adams ceiling with panels by the 18th century decorative painter Angelica Kaufman. The walls are padded silk fabric and draperies frame 10-foot windows with wrought iron balconies beyond.

Adjoining The Salon to the east side is the inviting wood-paneled library and to the west the dramatic dining salon. Original wide plank wood flooring, vaulted ceiling, rich Italian marble base molding and impressive marble fireplace unify all the rooms.

Mckim, Mead & White designed the building in 1909; which was designated a New York Landmark in 1970 and is listed in the National Register of Historical Places.
