First Floor

​​​Public spaces for entertaining and the family’s private spaces occupy this floor. The central core dates to 1896 while wings on the east and west sides were added during a massive expansion in the early 1930s. The McCormick family spent most of their time on this floor once the additions were completed.​

​Long Hall

Household servants used this passage to move from the entry hall to the West Wing. They could access the bedrooms and sitting rooms without disturbing Colonel or Mrs. McCormick who might be using adjacent rooms.
