old papers in the library
Remember when Bill happened upon remnants of original ceiling and wall treatments in a closet? Similar discovery this week. While taking out bottom drawers of 1860 bookcase in the living room, Jason uncovered hand blocked wallpaper that must have been applied in 1853, before cases were built.

I think you should leave your restoration diary as a time capsule for someone to find a hundred yeard from now.

Thanks, Rick! Love this idea which would give someone the pleasure I had in discovering the diaries Gov. Holley kept during the original building, thanks to Katherine Chilcoat/Salisbury Historical. Appreciate your comment and readership.

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.
