Bush-Holley House is the centerpiece of the Greenwich Historical Society's site on Cos Cob Harbor in Greenwich. A unique presentation provides visitors with two distinct time periods -- the New Nation (1790-1825) and the Cos Cob Art Colony (1890-1920). Eight evocative, well-documented rooms within the house feature art, furnishings and objects from these two periods, while the historic buildings, landscape and gardens evoke the turn of the twentieth century when Cos Cob became an art colony and cradle of American Impressionism. The Storehouse museum gallery features changing exhibitions.
