The Greenwich Historical Society is a charming time capsule tucked beside the Greenwich waterside. It is one of the jewels of the greater Greenwich area and a must see. During the summer months, the Historical society features some amazing gardens filled with beautiful flowers and hydrangeas. There, you’ll find amazing views. The Society also hosts events throughout the summer that are well worth checking out, including jazz and band performances on their lawn and their Tavern Garden Market on alternating Wednesdays. Perfect for a day by the boats in Greenwich, the Historical Society also offers a beautiful outdoor cafe, historical buildings and artwork, garden and galleries and much more. For the first portion of my visit, I started by viewing and learning about the history of the Bush-Holley house, family history and the artists who lived there. One of the most incredible parts of the Greenwich Historical Society is that the artwork that they have on display there is tied to the families and homes that are preserved. Rarely do you find such beautiful and historically relevant works of art in their original location. Some of the most famous American impressionists worked and resided at the Bush-Holley house and their artwork is still shown there today. I also learned a lot about Greenwich history at the Historical Society through the artifacts, artwork, video and images that are on display. The staff at the Historical Society were incredibly helpful and friendly as well. After I visited the galleries I went on to view the gardens and flowers. The landscape of the Greenwich Historical Society is absolutely breathtaking. Rows and rows of hydrangeas, tomatoes, hanging flowers and more fill the greenery to compliment the historical houses. After exploring the preserved history and historical sights, it’s a great idea to end your afternoon by getting lunch at the Museum Cafe, or Toby’s Tavern.
