Bush-Holley Historic Site
Bush-Holley Historic Site Review
In the 1890s visitors from New York's Art Students League journeyed to the Cos Cob section of Greenwich to take classes taught by American impressionist John Henry Twachtman at a boardinghouse for artists and writers run by Josephine and Constant Holley. Thus the Cos Cob art colony, which flourished until 1920, was born. Today the 1730-vintage house is the Bush-Holley Historic Site, which displays a wonderful collection of 19th- and 20th-century art by sculptor John Rogers, potter Leon Volkmar, and painters Childe Hassam, Elmer Livingstone MacRae, and, of course, Twachtman. The visitor center, set in the historic site's circa-1805 storehouse, holds changing exhibitions on art and history.
