She died Oct. 7 1895. A few months after her death construction resumed. This blog is about the history of the Moran family & their life at Moran Place. Money is fleeting, History is forever.

Moran Home, Interior Picture
This picture was taken between 1895-1920 and is the upstairs bedroom that faces the street. We know it was taken pre-1920 because there is no light switch on the wall by the door. Electricity wasn't installed till after 1920. We don't know who the woman is. Some of the pieces of furniture in this picture are still in the house today.
