Rocky Pastures in Seacoastonline.com

The Design Show at Rocky Pastures made the Year in Review for Seacoastonline.com.  Here’s a short blurb from the article:

The event helped to share the historical culture of Kennebunkport — including Rocky Pastures, the 6,000-square-foot estate formerly belonging to Kenneth Roberts — while highlighting local designers who uniquely designed the estate’s 12 rooms, some with whimsy, others with decadence, and many paying homage to the author.

The Designer Show House was not just a beneficial opportunity for the Historical Society, but a special chance for enthusiasts of Roberts, history or architecture. It was the first time the public had access to the 1930s estate where the author penned his popular novels of historical fiction. Roberts received a 1957 Pulitzer Prize in the Special Awards and Citations category “for his historical novels which have long contributed to the creation of greater interest in our early American history.”

If you’re in Kennebunkport in the surrounding areas, be sure to visit the designers who played a part in making the show a success!
