Roseland Cottage

The Rest of the Year

The Bowen family spent several months each year in Woodstock at their summer home, Roseland Cottage. The rest of the year they lived in Brooklyn, New York; and Henry traveled daily to Manhattan, where his newspaper and silk/dry goods businesses were located. Henry’s involvement in the planning of Roseland Cottage, his interest in ecclesiastical architecture, and his belief in taking a responsible role in making towns attractive leave little doubt that his homes and offices in New York and Brooklyn would be stylish.
