Riverbend Cottage // c.1860

No, this is not Martha’s Vineyard, it is Collinsville, Connecticut! Perched on a hill near the banks of the Farmington River, this quaint little Victorian cottage is one of the better-preserved examples of worker’s cottages in the former industrial village. I could not locate much on the house’s history, beyond that it may have once been part of a larger home, and moved to this site in the 20th century.

    Hello! What a pleasant surprise to see my little house on your blog! The bit of history you list is accurate, I have more details if you are interested. Also, if you are interested in seeing the house in person or seeing before/after photos of the restoration, I would be happy to share them.

      That would be awesome! If you could share any before-after photos or historic photos, I’d love to share on my Instagram. Everyone loved your home
