Daily Dream Home: The Lafayette House

Particular attention should be drawn to the fireplace mantels in these two front parlors. Both are 18th century Adam style mantels, which replaced the earlier mantels in a 20th century restoration. The mantel in the front parlor is believed to have come from the Jonah Thompson house in the 200 block of South Fairfax Street and depicts Pomona, the Goddess of fruit trees, while the mantel in the back parlor depicts what is known locally as the fabled “Kiss.” Particularly interesting in these formal rooms is the rose and vine decorations under the windows and the large embrasured windows with folding, paneled shutters and original silver hardware. The gold leaf treatment in the entry hall and both parlors is similar to that in the Valentine Museum in Richmond and at Mount Vernon.
