The earliest section is probably a very modest eighteenth-century cottage. What is compelling for the visitor here are the numerous additions, especially, the early twentieth-century studio with large skylight on the north side. Additions, shutters, bay windows, trellises, pretty plantings, and a picket fence combine charmingly to create the very picture of the picturesque colonial farmhouse, one of America’s most potent cultural icons.
