W. H. Gratwick III found this stained glass window somewhere and used it in his reconstruction of the house after the 1973 fire.
Oak Room

The oak room was purchased as a complete package from Louis Comfort Tiffany's studio sometime in the early 1900s after construction on the main house had been completed. Tiffany had salvaged the room from an old English manor that was being demolished. According to family lore WHG, Jr bought the room for about $13,000 after seeing the mantle in Tiffany's showroom; then had it added on to the Linwood house.
