Greenwich Historical Society to Open its Galleries and Offer Free Tours of Bush-Holley House in Celebration of CT Open House Day

COS COB, CT, June 1, 2022 – Connecticut’s annual ‘Open House Day’ on June 11 offers a cultural bonanza for state residents interested in the arts. In recognition of the 18-year tradition, Greenwich Historical Society is offering free tours of Bush-Holley House and admission to its Permanent Collections Gallery at no cost. The historic gardens can be enjoyed with new self-guided tours and visitors can browse a specially curated selection of seasonal gifts at the Museum Store, followed by a snack at the Artists’ Café to complete the experience.

Constructed in 1730, Bush-Holley House is a designated National Historic Landmark. Guided tours give visitors insights into two distinct time periods in Greenwich history: the New Nation era (1790-1825), when it was home to the wealthy mercantile Bush family and the individuals they enslaved, and the Art Colony era (1890-1920), when the Holley family ran it as a boarding house and home to Connecticut’s first Impressionist art colony.

Bush-Holley House Tours will be available at 12:00, 1:30 and 3pm. For reservations call (203) 869-6899. The Permanent Collections Gallery is open from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. For more information: https://greenwichhistory.org/event/open-house-day/

Enjoy a fun filled day of “Discover Greenwich” activities!
