Holladay House Memories Reception
On November 16, 2009, as part of our 20th anniversary celebration, the Holladay House held a Memories Reception for the community.
From 5-7pm the community poured into our home to regale us with memories, stories and photos of the building and the Holladay Family. Events that evening included:
- Display of Dr. Holladay's medical equipment and documents
- Presentation of a new commissioned painting of the Holladay House by local artist Linda Boudreaux Montgomery
- Reading by the Mayor of the Town Resolution honoring the Holladay House's 20 years of service as an inn
- "Story circle" of community residents who told stories, shared yearbooks, donated a tuxedo (yes! a tuxedo!), and filled in the gaps of relatively recent Holladay House history
The evening was a huge success: not only did we receive a fantastic amount of information, the event was picked up by four newspapers!
We are currently scanning and processing all the information we were given. Once organized, we plan to share memories, stories and photos with our guests. Stay tuned!
Lots of Snow this Winter!
We thought we'd leave you with a few Winter visions of the Holladay House and Main Street after the big December snow storm.
