|Bringing Back Holleywood||
snow, father of invention
The ingenuity that built Holleywood survives in Alexander Holley's great-great-great grandson Theodore O'Neill who devised a way to take his nonambulatory son, David, skiing. (Rossignol, are you seeing this?) Speaking of snow, David recently got his wish to meet Snow White when Make-A-Wish Connecticut sent him and his parents to Disney World. Ah, Florida. Warming thought on this 10 degree day.
skiing down to the lake
Twelve snowy inches and more to come. Thanks to Lindsey for this shot of one of the driveway gateposts, lovely portrait of a New England winter eve.
Snow makes kids of all of us.
How glad we were to have taken down the trees that listed over the roof. And to have discovered that snow makes our driveway undriveable, in time to fix the problem before winter.
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.
