Fran Michael Foyer

Guests may enter the Fran Michael Foyer from the side doors or handicap ramp. Following Mrs. Michael’s death in 2002, the family donated a few pieces of heirloom furniture to her beloved DWC. Their invitation reads: Please sit on her lovely furniture and remember the twinkle in her eyes. The plaque displayed in the Foyer states that the area was dedicated in memory of her generosity to the Dayton Woman’s Club.

When you visit you can see her beautiful cane enclosed and displayed at the top of the steps leading to the Dreese Room. As in many other areas of the House, this Foyer was redecorated in 2008.
