Founder’s Day Event

Wednesday, July 18

Celebrate the founding of Greenwich at the oldest house in town, the Feake-Ferris House, which was saved from demolition and has been undergoing restoration by the Greenwich Point Conservancy.

On July 18, 1640, Robert Feake and Daniel Patrick purchased what became a part of Greenwich for “25 Coates.” The deed also states that “Elizabeth Neck”—now known as Greenwich Point—was Elizabeth Feake’s “Perticaler purchase.”

Attendees at the reception will be the first to tour the lovingly restored home, the earliest part of which was erected in 1645 by Elizabeth and Robert Feake.

The first 50 people to submit photos for the This Place Matters! competition will receive priority registration for the Founder’s Day event through June 25 at which time any remaining seats will become available to the public.

Registration will be available in June.

Wednesday, July 18
10am
Free
A shuttle will be available to transport guests from Greenwich Point to the Feake-Ferris House.
