The 35,000-square-foot, 50-room Colonial Revival mansion was completed in 1905 after three years of construction.
The George Eastman House museum notes: “Mr Eastman’s house presented a classical facade of decorative craftsmanship. Beneath this exterior were such modern conveniences as an electrical generator, an internal telephone system with 21 stations [one of which is shown below], a built-in vacuum cleaning system, a central clock network, an elevator, and a great pipe organ, which made the home itself an instrument, a center of the city’s rich musical life from 1905 until Eastman’s death in 1932.”
Here are some photos of the Eastman House, including a few snapshots of the many rooms at the home itself, taken in 2010.
