|Bringing Back Holleywood||
front page news
Thanks to Cynthia Hochswender, editor of The Lakeville Journal, for taking an interest in Holleywood. She came over and did a wonderful photo series and writeup, in advance of our opening the house to benefit Scoville Library, and honored us further with front page coverage.
carving the bird
Part of the joy of buying a place in Salisbury is taking part in the local fun. The annual Ice Carving competition was this weekend, and we admired sculptors' impressive flights of fancy. Then, we wandered over to watch the 86-year old Ski Jumping Championship which attracted Junior Olympic hopefuls from as far away as Park City, Utah. The town calendar is full of annual events like these to encourage real life interactions and help sustain a community in the non-virtual world.
era of elegance
The Salisbury Association is sponsoring a winter series of lectures entitled "The Era of Elegance". Standing room only in the Wardwell Room Saturday when Chris Brennan and Geoff Rosano spoke on Interior and Exterior architecture in the area between 1750 – 1860. We were delighted that Holleywood was included. If you missed the talk, you can read the cliff notes: Patrick Sullivan's nice summary in the Lakeville Journal.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
