One last detail was added to the exterior of our cozy cottage last week. A Rowayton Historical Society plaque was installed. We are officially living in the Harold and May Wilson House!
The RHS plaque program calls attention to the historic character of Rowayton and gives recognition to early buildings and to the people who built or resided in them. Along with our new plaque, the Historical Society provided us with a list of every owner since 1925, as well as drawings showing how the property lines have changed over the years. We learned that when the original owners Harold and May lived here, the house stood on 30 acres. Wow! Today, this sweet little abode nestles on .39 of an acre. And that is just the right size for us.
