Fall fete

Artboard 3@2x

For over a century, the Bush-Holley House and grounds have nurtured creativity, design and artful living.  This year, join us for a series of workshops that celebrate creative expression in all its forms.  From floral design and painting, to entertaining and decorating, we offer intimate hands-on workshops with cocktails and camaraderie that foster community connection.  Join us July through December.

From May 5 through November, join us on alternating Wednesdays and occasional Saturdays for our Tavern Garden Markets! Tavern Garden Markets feature all things “Home” – from food and flowers to specially curated items that enrich life enjoyed with family & friends. 

Greenwich Historical Society curators, educators and docents have come together to bring the best of Greenwich history – our stories, our landmarks, archives and collections –  online for all to peruse and enjoy.  For educators, parents, and all those curious about Greenwich and our rich history, we welcome to you enjoy.
