The Gothic Revival–style Roseland Cottage was built in 1846 as the summer home of businessman Henry Bowen, his wife, Lucy, and their young family. The Woodstock, Connecticut, house includes an aviary, a carriage barn, an icehouse, and the nation’s oldest surviving indoor bowling alley. historicnewengland.org/historic-properties/homes/roseland-cottage
I can see a place by the window Where firelight once played inside. I can picture the front as it used to be And grounds so clean and wide. Doors with well-oiled hinges Let in our willing feet. With everything in place as it should And everything trim and neat. I see it in mellowed reflection Until years have changed it to be A house with a memory; it's more than a house It once was home to me.
