This cozy upstairs room faces the front of house with views of the lawn and two giant European linden trees next door at the 1880s house named after them. A side window faces a hemlock grove.
The artwork is reminiscent of the early 1900s, when Rugby’s Sarah Kellogg married a wealthy Englishman and tried a pampered life in London. The marriage didn’t work, so she returned to her parents at Newbury House, divorced and married a local friend, surveyor Will Walton. The two worked hard to keep Rugby from disappearing in the critical 1914-1958 period. Both died in Rugby and are buried in the town cemetery.
