Miss Elva’s Parlor
Elva’s Parlor pays homage to Alma Shafer who lived in this house until she was 101 years old. Many town residents tell stories of visiting her as children to be regaled with stories of “the good old days” in Middletown. She sat in her rocking chair in the bay window so she could keep watch on the comings and goings in town.
This room is now set up with two executive desks which are large and easy to work at. One of them is in the bay window looking out on the town’s newest park and fountain. The other is in a commanding location in the center of the room. This is an excellent space to receive clients and interview potential employees. There is access from the Ante Room which is often used in conjunction as a reception area and it has direct access to the Copy/Business Center. It also exits on to the Veranda for a great cross breeze and access from the gardens.
The three working rooms on this side of Wren’s Nest coupled with the Entrance Gallery and the Veranda provide a perfect circular flow for groups of like-minded people that need an elegant, formal space tuned to conversation and refreshments in a sophisticated space for networking and mingling events.
