Rose Hill Mansion - The Banquet Room

Rose Hill Mansion  - The  Banquet  Room

Rose Hill Mansion - The Banquet Room, is in the north wing. A close up of the mahogany sideboard. On the sideboard is a five piece silver coffee and tea service made by I. W. Forbes of NYC in 1816. This service was a wedding present to Benjamin & Mary Saidler Swan and was inherited by their son Robert. The service was returned to Rose Hill by Benjamin Swan's great-great grandson, Waldo Hutchins III. Over the sideboard is an exceptionally large still life painting of fruits, c. 1850, by Severin Roesen. This hangs exactly where it hung during the Swan years. The unique wallpaper is a Nancy McClelland reproduction of a French Empire paper. On each side of the sideboard are two of the mahogany side chairs from the American Sheraton banquet table set. Rose Hill Mansion is located on Route 96A in Geneva, NY.

This service was once owned by Blanche Leathers (d. 1940), famous female captain of the steamboat Natchez VIII and daughter-in-law of the legendary Captain Thomas P. Leathers (1816-96), for whom seven of the Natchez steamboats were built. The Leathers family was based in New Orleans and ran steamboats from there to various points along the Mississippi River. It bears the monogram of her husband, Bowling S. Leathers, who commanded the Natchez VII (which he wrecked in 1888). This service was used on the Natchez VIII. It has been passed down in the donor’s family over three generations.
