Built in 1836, the house serves as the Humanities Council headquarters. Decorators have been at work in the house's historic downstairs rooms creating an early 19th-century theme. Guests are invited to enjoy a traditional evergreen and poinsettia motif complemented by fruit and other objects from nature.
