Ballroom - Looking across the Fireplace
This chandelier was introduced into this room during the restoration of the Mansion from 1974 - 1978. At the time, Alan Fortunoff, of Fortunoff Department Stores, was both a College Trustee and Chair of the Restoration Committee. It is said that this chandelier used to hang in one of the Fortunoff stores.

Before the 1974 fire, all the walls in the ballroom were paneled with English oak. This original detail is now only visible above the doorways on either side of the fireplace.
