Harrington House Historic Home in Amarillo Texas is a fine example of the Neoclassical style, with exquisite materials and workmanship prevalent throughout the home. The Reception Hall is resplendent with original tapestry wall covering, 18th century parquet de Verailles flooring and a 1697 relief-carved pine mirror, among other significant furnishings.
Fine furnishings and appointments, some of which are original to the house and others which were carefully selected by the Harrington’s, enhance the hospitable atmosphere of Harrington House. Warmth of the Harrington House Historic Home becomes apparent upon glance into the Library. Quarter-sawn oak paneling, leaded glass detail, and tracery on the ceiling seem to transport visitors into Tudor England.

Mrs. Harrington was voted a member of the 1988-89 International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. Table settings designed by Mrs. Harrington are changed seasonally.
