Aspinock Historical Society’s “Come and See What We Have Done at the Cady-Copp Cottage” event was a huge success with approximately 100 guests July 27. A Work Day is planned for Aug. 17.
The society’s goal was to connect its members and the community to the Cady-Copp Cottage, a hidden gem in the rough and often times the subject of its annual appeal campaign fund-raisers.
Curiosity brought the community to the event to learn the history and story behind Cady-Copp Cottage, to appreciate the work that has been done, and to see how much is still to be done. Guests also learned the plans for a completely restored Cady-Copp as a “walk through history” with each room designed in a different historical era. Residents of the home did indeed live through a number of eras.
Cady-Copp Cottage was donated to the historical society some years ago, which was a true gift, yet a great responsibility. The task and cost of rehabbing a mid-1700 built home can be daunting and guidelines must be followed. Aspinock Historical Society focuses on rehabbing the property by applying for grants and reaching out during its annual appeals.
A work day is planned at the Cady-Copp Cottage Aug. 17. Many hands are needed for all sorts of tasks like painting, scraping paint, yard work. If you love old houses and making history, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for details.
There will be another event at the Cady-Copp Cottage during The Last Green Valley’s Walktober. With two very important points of historical interest located in Putnam, the Boxcar Children Museum and the Cady-Copp Cottage, the Aspinock Historical Society is thankful for the chance to connect the community to unique history, and to welcome in visitors from afar.
