Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Joshua Haines House, the long time home of the famous congressman and later judge. Although Haines and his family lived here from 1880 until his death in 1915, he was not the original owner of the structure. It was built much earlier for a banker who later became an ambassador. Following the Haines family occupancy, the house was owned by an industrialist. It was purchased in 1925 by the state and opened to the public shortly after. The Haines family returned some possessions and furniture to the famous speeches. The drawing room to your right was used, of course, when guests visited. But the congressman often sat with his close friends in the kitchen at the back of the house. It was there that they discussed bills that later became law. The Haines liked to spend some time each day in the sun room just off this hall. It was here that Haines liked to write letters and sometimes play the violin while his wife, Martha, sewed or took care of her plants. We will now visit the rooms I have just described, beginning with the library.
