My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Wordless Wednesday -- Bette Davis House




The house is located in Lowell, Massachusetts, about a mile from where I live. Since Bette Davis is one of my favorite actresses, I still love knowing that she lived in Lowell for less than two years. Please see Wikipedia article.

How cool is that? To have a wonderful piece of architecture and history so close to your home...

Excellent choice for Wordless Wednesday! I doubt if, about this place, Bette would have said "What a dump!" Trivia: what movie was that line in?

I've been looking forward to posting this for a long time, and I'm glad you all enjoyed the photo.
"What a dump! From 'Beyond the Forest' [This line of dialogue would later reappear in the opening scene of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), delivered by Elizabeth Taylor"

How cool! I'm a huge fan, too. Thanks for sharing this bit of history in your neighborhood.

Can you share the address of the house.

I would like to take a picture myself.

It is Chester St., off of Westford. Don't know the exact address, but the street is very short. Since I took the picture, and you know what it looks like you won't miss the pink house.
