The Peebles Dining Room features original murals depicting scenes from Chapel Hill. Marion Wooten Peebles commissioned these murals in 1947 for his Lawrenceville, Virginia home. Thirty years later, Marion Wooten “Dyke” Peebles Jr. had the task of selling his parents’ home. These murals, he felt, belonged in Chapel Hill. John Short, George Watts Hill’s private conservator, undertook the meticulous work of removing the oil-on-canvas paintings and mounting them on protective aluminum panels. They were kept in environmentally controlled storage until they could be placed on these walls in 1993. Pat Scheibel painted the names above each building and the border of this room. The bright and cheerful atmosphere of The Peebles Room makes it a wonderful space to host a bridal shower or luncheon, tea party, book club meeting or any other intimate gathering for friends and family.
