About the Foundation House at Old Mill Farm

In 1927, investment banker and decorated World War I pilot George L. Ohrstrom commissioned architect Charles Lewis Bowman to build the sprawling gentleman’s estate known as Old Mill Farm.

About the Fall Fête

Fall Fête is a critical fundraiser benefiting Greenwich Historical Society’s programs in education, historic preservation and the arts. This year, Greenwich Historical Society has continued to expand our free and low-cost educational programs for local schoolchildren and offered new and exciting events to build community and connect our neighbors to Greenwich’s rich history. This work is especially important as the pandemic continues to distance us and our children from each other, and we hope you will take this opportunity to support the Historical Society’s mission.

As an independent non-profit organization, the Historical Society relies on your support. We hope to see you on November 4th and thank you for your continued support.

The Bumbys at the Fall Fête!

We are thrilled to host the Bumbys! They are anonymous performance artists who provide “A Fair and Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance” using nothing more than analog typewriters and charming wit, the Bumby’s first performed in a Brooklyn subway station as a social experiment in 2008.  Since then, they’ve performed nationally and internationally on behalf of Whitney Museum of American Art, Microsoft, Bad Robot, Art of Elysium, Vogue, MTV, and Berklee College of Music, to name a few. They’ve written for New York Magazine, been commissioned for multiple art residencies, and been profiled by publications including The New York TimesThe New YorkerThe LA Times, CBS NewsELLE, and Vogue Italia. 

Experiencing a performance by The Bumbys is as simple as it sounds: participants stand in front of The Bumbys while they type out a personalized narrative that playfully describes how each individual’s appearance is read by the world. Instead of snarky takedowns, appraisals by The Bumbys are warm and funny; The Bumbys believe it’s most interesting to look for the good in people, and then to help them see it too.

Founded on an outlandish idea, The Bumbys are all about living in the present, letting go and taking creative risks; they are champions of the idea that you can find an authentic and sustainable meeting point between art and commerce.
