REMODELING TWAIN HOME.
Holland House Pictures Shipped to Hartford, Conn.
Following the sale of furnishings of the old Holland House, at Thirtieth Street and Fifth Avenue, the doors and bathroom fixtures are now being removed and shipped to Hartford, Conn. They are to be used in remodeling the former residence of Mark Twain into small apartments, and will also go toward equipping a $1,500,000 apartment building which will be erected on part of the old Clemens estate.
Most of the 2,000 doors in the old hotel are being shipped to Hartford. The purchase includes the hinges, brass knobs and door jambs. Each set, it was said, would cost $25 to reproduce. The purchase price is $3. The 160 bathtubs have been bought for $15,000.
