Bush-Holley Historic Site is the centerpiece of the Greenwich Historical Society's home on Cos Cob Harbor in Greenwich, CT. The house features two distinct time periods–the New Nation (1790-1825), when the house was owned by a wealthy, local merchant and its later life as a boarding house and home to the Cos Cob art colony (1890-1920). Eight evocative rooms feature art, furnishings and objects from these two periods including works by American Impressionist artists Childe Hassam, John Henry Twachtman and Elmer MacRae. The Storehouse Gallery features changing exhibitions, and the Vanderbilt Education Center hosts regular lectures and programs for adults and children. Bush-Holley Historic Site is a National Historic Landmark, a member of the Historic Artists Homes and Studios, one of 19 museums in Connecticut participating in the Connecticut Art Trail and accredited by the American Association of Museums.
