Houses on the Move: A Progressive Historic House Dinner

7/25/2015 - 6:00 pm


As the Colonial Revival swept Norfolk in the 1920’s and 1930’s, architect Robert M. Carrère was engaged by summer residents F.S. Jerome and Charles Garside to dismantle two colonial houses board by board and reconstruct them on choice sites in Norfolk. The evening will begin with cocktails at the Torrington House (1805), relocated to Norfolk in 1940 by Charles Garside, and continue with dinner at the Rose Terry Cooke House (1795), relocated from Winsted to Norfolk in 1937 by F.S. Jerome. This fund-raising event is by invitation sent to members with reservations required.
