Here is a bit describing it:
"Glynallyn is a grand 3-story, 32,000 square-foot mansion that was built from 1913-1917 by George Marshall Allen and is rich in history. It features over 40 rooms abounding with architectural intricacies and surprising details around every corner." -http://mansioninmay.org/Mansion-in-May/Introducing-Glynallyn.aspx
As children we would run around the outside of the mansion with our dogs. The grounds were practically deserted, the property being used as Exxon's mapmaker's division. The interior was changed to accommodate their business.
The Mansion in May group worked with many designers to create beautiful rooms. We were not allowed to take any photos of the interior, but there are some posted on Facebook by the Committee.
The delicious luncheon was by Country Caterers. It was worth the trip.
