Extra! Extra! Read All About Us!

The Enos Kellogg Homestead got some love last week week, as our local Norwalk newspaper, The Hour, featured the restoration of our home in its "Habitat" series.

It's always nice to show off the house to an appreciative audience, and the reporter, Kaitlyn Krasselt, was a pleasure to deal with.

The article appeared in a number of Hearst Company papers around Fairfield County.

As an added bonus, there are 50 pictures along with the article, including some interior shots that are far better than anything I have been able to produce, so be sure to check out the images.

I've learned some interesting things about our house and its inhabitants in old issues of The Hour and other local newspapers over the years (see my earlier blog post on this research).  There are even little notices posted by or about  Enos Kellogg himself in the old Norwalk Gazette two hundred years ago.  Hopefully, in a couple of centuries someone will have a read of this article in The Hour's holographic archives to better understand exactly what was going on in our home in the early 21st century.
