The Farnsworth Library Mantel

The comfortable reading room of the William A. Farnsworth Library is enhanced by a marble mantel originally imported for the U.S. Capitol. Initially one of a pair, the mantel eventually found its way to the Farnsworth Library after having been installed for a time in the 10,000 volume library on the second floor of the Washington, DC home of Supreme Court Justice Horace Gray.
