Bush-Holley House is the centerpiece of the Greenwich Historical Society's site on Cos Cob Harbor in Greenwich, CT.

A unique presentation affords visitors the opportunity to experience two distinct time periods in the life of the house -- 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, well-documented rooms feature art, furnishings and objects from these two periods including exemplary works by American Impressionist artists Childe Hassam, John Henry Twachtman and Elmer MacRae.

The historic landscape and heirloom vegetable garden evoke the turn of the twentieth century when Cos Cob was a bustling, bohemian hub of intellectual and artistic creativity and ultimately the cradle of American Impressionism.

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 18 museums in Connecticut participating in the Connecticut Art Trail and accredited by the American Association of Museums.
