|Bringing Back Holleywood||
Today, Donald and I officially become owners of Holleywood. We drive up from New York just for the closing. As we pass the "Welcome to Connecticut" sign, the words take on new meaning. The closing takes place at a law office in Torrington, beneath a picture I can't stop staring at, trying to absorb the fact that the men depicted were contemporaries of the guy who built the house we are buying.

Dave and I are so happy you are working on the house!! We were sad to see that John had died. And I was sure the house would crumble. Feel free to contact us. I am a crazy genealogy buff and Dave is a descendant of Alexander Hamilton Holley. Lots of people in our family still have "Holley" as part of their name - first and middle - even though we are all Rudds. We will follow your endeavors!

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.
