Roseland Cottage 

 I visited one of New England’s National Historic Landmark: Roseland Cottage in Woodstock, Connecticut. This Gothic-Revival style summer home was for Henry and Lucy Bowen and their family built in 1846.

It includes massive, picturesque landscapes and gardens, detailed wall coverings, heavily patterned carpets and one of the oldest living bowling alleys.
