Interesting Facts about

Greenwich

#1 One of Greenwich’s most noteworthy private homes is an homage to Versailles, a replica of Le Petit Trianon. Called Northway, it’s a striking white Neoclassical mansion on 12 acres on North Street.

#2 In April 1902, Ernest Thompson Seton visited the Cos Cob School to invite students who had vandalized his nearby estate to camp. This was the start of the League of the Woodcraft Indians or “Seton’s Indians,” one of the forerunners of the Boy Scouts of America. Seton was an author and wildlife artist as well as the father of author Anya Seton.

#3 One of the founders of Greenwich was a colorful woman named Elizabeth Winthrop Feake. In 1640 her husband Robert Feake and Daniel Patrick purchased what became a part of Greenwich for “25 Coates.” The deed states that “Elizabeth Neck”—now known as Greenwich Point—was Elizabeth Feake’s “Perticaler purchase.” The oldest house in Greenwich was erected in 1645 by the Feakes and stands today near the entrance to Elizabeth’s beloved Greenwich Point Park.

Greenwich

The Crown Jewel of Connecticut’s Gold Coast

By LIZ LEAMY (click here for bio)

Greenwich is largely reputed to be the crown jewel of Connecticut’s storied Gold Coast corridor and with good reason.

This legendary Manhattan suburb, situated at the New York border, is home to approximately 60,000-plus residents and a place with all of the characteristics synonymous with that of a highly desirable U.S. city suburb.

Aside from being in close proximity to Manhattan (just 30 miles away) and some other major U.S. cities including Boston, Providence and Hartford, Greenwich is a place with a personality, style and spirit unto itself.

First settled by its founders back in 1640, Greenwich had originally served as a main stopover for some of the country’s founding fathers during the Revolutionary War period. (It has even been said that George Washington had left a cryptic note for some of his Continental Army officers in a large tree located right in front of North Mianus Elementary School in Riverside, one of the town’s nearly dozen neighborhoods, outlining strategic military directives.)

The Junior League of Greenwich is a gift that just keeps on giving. This highly-esteemed, remarkably charitable, and passionately involved organization has been responsible for designing and offering invaluable services and advocating for many causes that have affected, improved, and inspired so many lives and is most grateful to its spectrum of friends and allies, partners and peers who all have helped them to get their job done.

      This incredible organization, comprised of nearly 700 members, steps up to the task every time it sets out to build, improve and assist with a cause, situation or organization in every way, with its primary purpose being the goal of fulfilling its mission of voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of its trained volunteers.

      “The organization wants to be the leading organization that connects, enriches and inspires women to advance the quality of life in Greenwich,” said Debra McLaughlin, Junior League of Greenwich President. “The Junior League strives for this goal through the accomplishments of women who share the same organizational values.”
