History: This entry was salvaged from the late 1800's mansion known as the historic Galloway House in Jamestown, New York. The estate was designed by Carl C. Pedersen, a Danish-American architect who moved to Jamestown in 1871 and designed furniture for years before becoming the architect of choice for many of Jamestown's elite institutions and individuals.
This house was built for the Pennsylvania oil tycoon, John Galloway. John and Sarah Galloway, parents of the fabled "Lady in Glass". The Galloway’s daughter, Grace, was a talented singer who regularly played at Chautauqua Institution and died in 1898 at the age of 27. Her father commissioned a statue in Grace’s memory, now known as the "Lady in Glass".
An artist in Pittsburgh used Grace’s last portrait to model a piece of clay, which was then taken to Florence, Italy, where it was carved to life-size scale in Italian marble.
The propery was acquired by the local Moose Lodge Chapter in 1932, and later incorporated multiple additions to the grand structure. Over the years, the grand structure had fallen into disrepair and was slated for demolition in 2019.
This building, and items from it, are featured on Season 11, Episode 1, of the Diy Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
