The Springfield Preservation Trust will host its summer fundraiser on Sunday, August 5 at the home of Dennis Duquette, 208 Longhill Street. The event will begin at 1PM and hors d’oeuvres, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
Located in the Forest Park Heights Local Historic District, this English Cottage style home was built in 1912 from designs of G. Wood Taylor for Ernest Bugbee, treasurer of D. H. Brigham & Co., a Main Street clothier. Like the other homes built on the west side of Longhill Street, it sits on a bluff above the Connecticut River, with spectacular views of the river.
