About this product
- DescriptionA warm and personal account of living in an historic New England Georgian house, and a journey into America's past through its history, traditions and recipes.
- Author BiographyPaula Bennett was born in 1948 and until 2004 resided in Baltimore, Maryland. She received a BA in French at the University of Maryland and her M.Ed. at Goucher College. Paula taught in public and private schools for over twenty years. During that time, she developed a socially conscious curriculum for a private middle school in Baltimore while serving on boards to support community arts programs. Both Paula and her husband, Harvey, have been avid environmentalists and locavores since the early 1970s when they began to raise chickens, garden, and make their own wine. In 1994, she joined her husband's family business, Matthew Bennett International, a philatelic auction house. Paula helped grow what had been a regional auction business into one with an international presence, conducting sales in Zurich, Switzerland, and Hong Kong, China. In 2013, Paula decided to semi-retire from the stamp auction world and immersed herself in further researching the history of her house and the town of South Berwick, Maine where since 2004 she has lived with her husband of forty-five years. Since moving to South Berwick, Paula has been actively involved in the local community. She has established connections with the various historic organisations in the region, including Historic New England. Paula is the former program chairman of the Old Berwick Historical Society (OBHS) and continues to conduct house tours for the society. She and her husband also give tours of their General Goodwin home for other organisations such as the Warner House and the York County schools.
