As the house stands now, there aren't many (if any) original pieces of furniture left. I would have loved to have seen the home when it was completely furnished. When Sarah died, her niece took the pieces she wanted and then sold the rest through private auctions. When the house was emptied after Sarah's death, it took 6 trucks a day for 6 weeks to remove all of the furnishings. Visiting the house now, you can get a sense of what it might have been like from the remaining stained glass and architectural pieces scattered throughout the home.
Unfortunately, no photos were allowed on the inside of the mansion.
Since we were near Santana Row, we decided to walk off our food while we window shopped and played a little chess.
So, all in all a fun little day trip. As we've been reading about ancient Egypt this summer, I wanted to go to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum as well. We decided to skip it this time and head home a bit early. If it hadn't been for the massive traffic jam, the whole day would have been about perfect.
