The wood paneled floors and historic paintings that line the walls give the rooms a vintage, authentic ambiance, making a remarkable impression within the stylish but comfortable chambers. Notable residents of the townhouse have included Colombian ambassador Climaco Calderon Reyes, the eighth librarian of the Library of Congress Herbert Putnum, and the famous artist Eliot O'Hara.
