|Bringing Back Holleywood||
We were delighted to attend a celebration hosted by Salisbury's Historic District Commission at the Old Bushnell Tavern, beautifully restored home of Arthur and Kathryn Taylor, and to receive this lovely plaque which the commission has created for historic houses in the district. The plaque has been a Commission project long in the works and I like it even better than last year's initial design, don't you?
One of the unanticipated pleasures of buying the house has been connecting with new neighbors, some of whom are also historic property enthusiasts. This weekend, we were invited to a celebration of Salisbury's historic homes at the Old Bushnell Tavern which I looked for in vain, driving up and down Main Street before realizing that it hasn't been a tavern for years. Outside this landmark house, Historic District Commissioner Digby Brown holds up a plaque being developed to designate historic homes in the area.
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.
