The Green-Twachtman House 1845-Today

Greenwich Historical Society 86th Annual Meeting and Panel Discussion: Living History: The Green-Twachtman House 1845-Today
An important witness to Greenwich history, 30 Round Hill Road was built in 1845 by Allen Green, a free black man, in a community populated largely by free blacks called Hangroot. The Impressionist painter John Henry Twachtman, a founding member of the Cos Cob art colony, bought it in 1890 and Jim and Jane Henson lived there with their family 75 years later. John Nelson has been its prudent steward since 1971. The different eras of the house will be discussed by our panelists: a descendant of the original builder, a Twachtman expert, Jim Henson’s daughter, and the home’s current resident.
