Located in Dresden TN, Moran Place was built by J.W. Moran for his wife Sophia Reilly Gunn. The house is a modified design of George Barber's Cottage no. 36 from Book No. 2. Construction began in early 1895 but put on hold when Sophia became Ill and died Oct 7 1895. Construction resumed a few months later.

Pressed, Cut and Crackled Glass
From cut glass vases to pressed glass candlesticks the Moran family enjoyed collecting glassware. On a trip to New York they visited the Corning Museum of Glass. I've included postcards from the trip as well as a photograph of a few items that graced the curio cabinets at Moran Place.
