Treasure Chest Thursday - Elsie's Hideaway

In June I wrote about Stonover Farm and our family visit to a place that had a deep connection to our past. This week I received an email from someone who also has a connection to Stonover Farm. In his honor, I'm posting this tidibt from our visit.

Rumor has it (rumors I've heard, anyway) that this little cabin nestled in the woods above the farm was the writing hideaway of anthropologist Elsie Clews Parsons.

The Parsons family has a deep connection to Lenox. My family is related to them through marriage, and I admit I don't know quite enough to know what Elsie's ties to Lenox were, but regardless, it's a beautiful little gem of a place tucked away in the woods with a wonderful (possible) history.
