Happy Thanksgiving from East Hampton with a special Holiday Weekend House Tour

I hope you are having a wonderful 
Thanksgiving Weekend!
The annual 2015 
East Hampton Historic House Tour
kicks off tomorrow

This Thanksgiving we are traveling to California, so no cooking for me.  I will only miss cooking Thanksgiving a bit, but I will certainly miss this annual House Tour, which is a rare opportunity to take in views of some of the finest architectural homes in East Hampton. For Us, Thanksgiving Weekend Is Not Complete Without
 the East Hampton Historic House Tour.

An added surprise to the tour is offering the opportunity to view the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran house and studio.  Not usually open to the public, this studio is in the throes of restoration.  This historic structure was built in 1884, and one of the first artist’s studios in East Hampton, playing a significant role in American art history.
 Happy Thanksgiving
Happy Nesting
