Governor Dannel P. Malloy visits Roseland Cottage
August 23, 2012
Historic New England welcomed Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy to Roseland Cottage in Woodstock on Thursday, August 16, when he visited the area in support of the state’s Still Revolutionary campaign.
Governor Malloy toured the 1846 Gothic Revival house and carriage house, visited the indoor bowling alley and parterre garden, and spoke to staff and volunteers about the history of the property and the role regional attractions play in the state’s economy. Some of the things that interested the governor during his visit were Henry C. Bowen’s connection to Abraham Lincoln, the Lincrusta wall coverings, and the Downing-inspired landscape.
