Calling all sweet tooths! Indulge in a candy buffet, chocolate fountain, delicious sampling of treats from local bakeries and chocolatiers, have some hot chocolate and see the Greenwich Historical Society’s beautiful new campus. Bring the kids: Children can decorate cupcakes from Sweet Lisa’s (and then run around the grounds).
The exciting reimagined Greenwich Historical Society campus includes beautiful new museum galleries, a café, store, library and archives, and landscape and gardens restored based on historical documentation. The circa 1730 National Historic Landmark Bush-Holley House survived the American Revolution and became the site of Connecticut’s first American Impressionist art colony from 1890 to 1920, where influential artists including Childe Hassam lived and worked. Greenwich Historical Society preserves and interprets the history of this vibrant, globally influential community through exhibitions and engaging lectures, programs, and events.
