Roseland Cottage

Technology at Roseland Cottage

Henry and Lucy Bowen were an upper class young couple living in New York City in the 1840s, a time when domestic technology was changing and the city provided access to it. When they built Roseland Cottage, they incorporated current technology in their home. Over the years, technology at Roseland Cottage was upgraded to accommodate an expanding family and the significant demands of the family’s social schedule, and to improve the comfort and function of the estate.
