This Saturday History loves the Blues at Roseland Cottage in Woodstock.
Roseland Cottage is a gem. This National Historic Landmark was built in 1846 in the then new Gothic Revival style. It was the summer cottage of Henry Bowen and family, wealthy New Yorkers who summered here in the country.
Here’s your chance to see it by day AND night. Spontaneous weekend coming at you!
This Saturday, August 13, the cottage is open from 11 am- 5 pm (it’s actually open frequently June through mid-October but I’m making a day for you here). Tours are on the hour. Check out the colorful rooms, antique bowling alley, ice house and all the very cool vestiges of that sweet pastoral life gone by.
Afterwards head over to Sweet Evalina’s Stand (tel: 860-928-4029) for dinner or venture to Pomfret or Putnam for a little bite or shop.
Then… back to Roseland Cottage for some rockin blues music. Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze (I hear these guys are great!) is playing at 7:00 pm, a twilight lawn concert that’s sure to shake the foundation of this pink palace.
Sounds like a great summer night to me. More details here on Mystic.org. Put 556 Route 169, Woodstock CT in your GPS.
