The Library was built in 1969 by Ann Hopewell Smoot in memory of her husband, Lewis Egerton Smoot, president and chairman of the board of Smoot Sand & Gravel, who died at the age of 82 in October of 1962.
The Memorial Room of the Library is paneled in burled maple, topped by plaster cornices colored to
match. The parquet floor is covered by a 22 foot Imperial Kirman rug. Draperies of Scalamandre brocade,
reported to have cost $300 per yard, originally hung in the three windows. Brass chandeliers hang above a 16
foot table of solid cherry with cherry side chairs.
The Library dedication took place on February 22, 1970. Because Lewis Egerton Smoot was a descendant of
George Washington's sister, the dedication was timed on Washington's Birthday.
