A two-tiered gravel driveway off Clinton Avenue in Westport leads to a vintage colonial house and a bit of U.S. architectural history. The house that sits on a nearly two-acre property at 82 Clinton Ave. was designed by Minerva Parker Nichols, one of the country’s first women architects, who also lived there for a time.
Nichols, the first woman to establish a successful American architectural practice in the late 19th century, on her own with no male partnership, designed this house for her daughter Adelaide Nichols Baker and her daughter’s husband John Baker, according to Bob Weingarten, House History Chair of the Westport Historical Society.
Weingarten combed through town records and found that the Bakers purchased the property in November 1924. The house was built in 1925. Weingarten said records also show the property was transferred to “Minerva Nichols” in August 1930 and she apparently lived there until her death in [...]

Secret Benefits And Drawbacks

Září 16th, 2011

I’m amazed by how much “misinformation” is out there when it comes to the subject of credit cards.

It’s amazing

Lillard described the turnout as “amazing,” stating that hundreds of people had already attended the festival by mid-afternoon.Traditional kidney stone claim to clean all the air in a room. Part of the event’s purpose was to let people enjoy the experience of how art is made in an interesting and creative way.
“We were looking for something that would really engage everybody in learning about how art is created and also to give another way for kids to just to come out and create something,” Lillard said. “Really, for a first-year event, we are really pretty blown away.”
Among the artists invited to attend the festival was David Heatwole, of Martinsburg, who normally works in acrylic and oil painting. He is best known for a mural of Vincent Van Gogh made out of bottle caps that was displayed in Martinsburg.
