This one of a kind historic gem features on the ground level a 16’ x 9’ ceiling in the Great Room. There are multiple levels in the home. The Great Room is 45’ x 25’ in size with a curving stairway up to the main level on both ends of the room. There are three balconies that look down into the Great Room. From the south side of the Great Room, there are steps leading down to the basement where there is a large amount of storage room and is the location for a wine cellar and tasting room or another parlor. There are also bookcases and a den which is 16’ x 16’ in size. On the east end there is a curving staircase going up to the main level. There is a landing there where one encounters the stair approach to the upstairs level from the main level of the home. On the way up to the top level on the east side is a loft designed for the grandchildren. Going to the top level of the home, one finds three large-sized bedrooms with two baths. There are 1326 square feet on this level.

The home has several wings. The north wing on the main level was originally an open back porch on the length of the north wing. This was enclosed and incorporated with an opening looking down into the Great Room. The additional wing would be the back entry tower, which is approximately 20’ in height. The main level in the front of the house is separated in the center by the entry foyer and to the west is the parlor. To the east is the library and to the north is the entry arch to the dining room. The foyer itself has a unique chandelier that originated from a mansion in Biloxi which was destroyed by Hurricane Camille. The duplicate chandelier is in the center of the dining room.  These chandeliers were re-assembled and reconditioned by Ward’s Brass on Pass Road in Gulfport. Someone bought the chandeliers in pieces in four cardboard boxes to Mr. Ward, and he purchased them. After assembly, the chandeliers were bought by the Danielson’s. Also in the entry are an antique French sofa and a very tall 9’ marble top French inlaid unique piece. Going west from the entry foyer is the parlor.
