Bill Moran spent his entire career traveling all over the world!

Through his travels he accumulated Signed Art Work, Stained Glass, and Memorabilia from the different countries where he worked. In his retirement years, his love for people, cooking, and entertaining are evident from the spacious rooms to the cookware, to the serving pieces, china, flatware, etc. Along with being a skilled woodworking craftsman he also was an avid collector of Milk Glass (mostly Westmoreland) and other unique pieces throughout the house. No way to list or describe this massive collection!
