Hi friends! Sorry I missed you last week, but I was away at Storey Publishing working on my book in person with my amazing team.(More to come on that!) For the blog hop this week, I thought that I would share some neat history about where Storey Publishing is located and where I stayed, The Porches Inn.
North Adams is nestled in a valley surrounded by beautiful green and purple mountains. I came in on the Mohawk Trail. This trail was used by American Indians as a trade route. It was gorgeous! I stopped on the hairpin turn and snapped a view of the vista for you.
Storey Publishing and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA) all reside in old renovated brick factories that are commonly found across New England. Built in the 1800’s these factories were first a printing company and then an electric company.
While there, I stayed at the most amazing New England Inn, The Porches. The Porches used to be row houses that where the factory workers lived with their families. It’s conveniently located just across the street. Today, completely renovated and connected by one huge porch, The Porches is just the most darling place that takes you back to yesteryear.
Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the sweetest resident kitty, Sabine. She was very busy and hardly kept still for a photo. She had things to do!
I could not help but be a lookie loo in the lobby. Vintage finds were everywhere. Right up my alley!
