Hamilton Avenue students see Bush-Holley House as second home

By the end of this school year, nearly every student at Hamilton Avenue School had visited Bush-Holley Historic Site as a result of the Greenwich Historical Society’s School/Museum Partnership.

At a reception on June 9, students shared the results of their studies with their families and school officials by exhibiting class quilts and self-portraits and leading tours of Bush-Holley House. The results depicted vivid impressions of Bush-Holley Historic Site in fresh and insightful ways.

For the past six years, the Historical Society has arranged for working artists and educators to conduct special classroom workshops at Hamilton Avenue School to further explore topics touched upon during site visits. The program is designed to expose students to the enjoyment and creation of art and to build a foundation for lifelong learning and an appreciation for history.
