|Bringing Back Holleywood||
what lies beneath
We're installing a bathroom on the third floor, and between boards pried apart, you can see down to the lathing on the floor below. Unlike most pre-Civil War builders, Holleyood's craftsmen didn't skimp on flooring as they went up. These floorboards are hemlock and exceedingly thick. The electrician took time to figure out which floorboards were taken up in 1915 when original wiring was inserted and takes care to pull the same boards to minimize disruption.

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.
