Lydie's Cottage

This small house was the chauffeur’s quarters and garages for Mr. Marland’s carriages and cars. Shortly before E.W.'s death, he and his wife moved from the Artist Studio to the chauffeur’s house.

When Marland sold the mansion and property to the Carmelite Fathers, this house and the land around it were not included in the sale. Mr. Marland left them to Lydie in his will and she lived there from 1941 to 1953 and again from 1975 until her death in 1987.

 

 

The north upstairs bedroom contains the Marland Family Exhibit, highlighting various elements of E. W. Marland's personal and public life - as a family man, a philanthropist, and a politician.
