Located in Dresden TN, Moran Place was built by J.W. Moran for his wife Sophia Riley Gunn. It's 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. The items presented here are from Moran Place.

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.
